well, maybe someday.
i have not been roller skating since a rather traumatic experience at the age of 15 involving going out on the rink by myself during a pairs-skating song (i was really sensitive during my adolescence!).
there was still plenty of opportunity for humiliation – falling onto my thumb (and spraining it), shuffling like frankenstein past a bunch of cool high school kids, even negotiating the ladies room ON SKATES. but now i just found it funny instead of awkward.
i’ll probably go again, though i suspect it will be years before i’m able to do the “south portland bounce.”
