I used to go to the rinks when I was a teenager. I can sure ride a bike, but I CANNOT roller skate! I have tried for years. I can push off with one, and coast on the other, and that's about it. The one good thing about it, is I met alot of girls that way, and they'd always feel sorry for me and pull me along; but that still felt foolish.
My younger daughter where's a pair all the time around the house, even today. She's actually really good on'em.
Another thing, is I have been intrigued by roller derby since I was a small boy. A few years ago, I talked to quite a few of the girls around here, and we almost got a team up and going. Sadly the main girl that woulda just ruled, moved away. Now it's just a fun discussion. I even found a perfect building to use, but I think my dream has died.
Some of the girls here in town really need an outlet like that to take out their aggressions! hehee.
I like roller skating if I am watching and not falling by getting the stupid skates on myself.
There's a few roller derby girls on the moped army even. They make me smile in a good way!
