How could I be in such a cold climate and not try it at least once?
Besides, at the time, I was watching the Winter Olympics and it was so fascinating watching people glide, twist, twirl, look so graceful on blades and ice. Ice that made me fall when I walked on it.
I loved where I worked. My work colleagues were amazingly amazing and my boss was just the ish! She throws a staff party for us in her home during the Christmas season and then she takes us all ice skating. Yes, finally, I also get to glide, twist, twirl and look so graceful... (or so I thought) until I saw what I would be gliding on.
|How does anyone even stand on these, much more glide and twirl in them?|
A few times, I managed to stand, by myself. But, just stand. No walking, and definitely no gliding. Nope, no skating.
|I'm sure I fell right after taking this picture.|
And then I stood up, dusted myself up and improvised.
|Like this, boy did I skate. Loved it! (thanks Allen for the support and for the idea *wink*)|
|Miss you guys!|
Moral: we all need each other.
See how I was assisted by Allen in his wheelchair? Who'd have thought that'd be the way it'd be? It usually is supposed to be the other way round.
