Roller skating!

mizarchivist organized a group skate over at Roller World in Saugus. It was fun!

I realized that even though I hadn't been in a rink since high school, all those hours way back when laid down some serious muscle memory. I failed to fall at least two dozen times, saved by reflexes I didn't realize I had until after I'd recovered.

noire observed that when I first got on the floor, I looked like I didn't know what I was doing, but ten minutes later I looked like someone who knew how to skate.

The community for group skates is saugussk8. Join us!

I'm looking forward to going again because there are a whole host of things I used to be able to do when I was 17 which I want to try doing again.

(I suppose that's true of other things in my life as well as skating.)
