Bought a Groupon for ice skating at Lloyd Center. It was $10 for two people with skate rental. Took my “special friend” Katie. (Side note: this is her new nickname and she will forevermore be referred to as such. Mainly due to my coworkers thinking I might be a lesbian because of all the lady-dates we go on. Oh, and maybe also because I brought power tools in to work to install a bulletin board, but whatevs. It’s probably the lady-dates.) First things first. Time to lace up!
Ready to roll! It’s been about 20 years since I’ve put on ice skates, but it did come back pretty quickly, after some stumbles.
We skated for about an hour, then stood enthralled as the Zamboni made it’s graceful loops around the rink. Why can I not look away?!? Skated for another half hour or so and asked three different people to take our picture before winding up with something that was acceptable.
Ice skating was really fun and a good workout. Taking your skates off at the end feels incredibly awkward and I was immediately sore. But I did get a good Toe Pick in!
