I went roller skating with my girlfriend and her kids. I didn’t even know that roller rinks were still around, as I haven’t been to one since high school. I had rented roller blades a couple of times since, but no skating on a wooden oval to hits of the 1980s in a very long time. I rented roller blades at the rink because I couldn’t help myself. Why make something easier when it can be harder? The Y chromosome made me do it. It turns out that I had no trouble with the inline skates. The best of the afternoon was that I had someone to hold my hand during couples only skate.
