Memories from childhood
I remember spending a whole summer on roller skates.
I went from these:
We had a really cool roller rink .. Ohio Skate. It was THE place to be, skating to "Somebody's Gonna Hurt Someone" ... or something like that. I never mastered skating backwards. I tried. Many times. And fell down. Many times. But I LOVED to skate.
I had two friends in my neighborhood who I played with constantly. The boy was all of three years old, and he was smarter than a whip. Looking back on that now, I marvel at the fact that a six year old sought out a three year old for entertainment. But we were steadfast friends.
We played Star Wars. We had lightsabers. We were cool. We thought we looked like this:
But I am sure we looked more like this:
The three of us were inseparable for what seemed like ages (when it was probably just a few years) until Anna, my girl friend, moved to the other side of town.
I think Anna moved because I hit her over the head with one of these on our way home from school because she wouldn't let me be Princess Leia:
I told you I liked Star Wars.
I'm a mom of three peeps ... Queen Bee, The Door Man, and the Chandelier Monkey, and wife to Ace, the Helpful Hardware Man. I created this space to get away from the people known as my inlaws, and because life with three kids and a hubby is all Unexplored Territory.
Why it sucks to be my manager right now...
