I wrote a few weeks ago about becoming obsessed with skates I found online. Here’s that post. Well, even though I doubted it would happen because the skates were backordered and I can be pessimistic sometimes, they finally arrived just as the company said they would… thank you Derby Warehouse!
I can say two things with total honesty… I’m still obsessively riding these skates. And two, I’ve never felt more like a 98-yr old than when I’m trying to skate up a slight incline. I’m pretty pathetic, but get me on a slight downhill and you’d think I’m Apolo Ohno out there! But then again, it may have happened that with my skates on I was not moving at all, just chatting with my niece and as soon as I tried to skate forward I fell right on my butt. Who else do you know that can literally not be moving at all, and still fall? Now you know a guy.
But I LOVE my skates, take a look…
See you tomorrow!
