Life Walkers for the Children
posted by December 24 at 17:12 PMon
Yesterday I went ice skating at Seattle Center, where the rink is tiny and the ice appears never to have been Zambonied, ever. I come from upstate New York, where the rinks flow like water, or something like that, so this constituted injury enough. But adding insult was the fact that the rink provides child-size walkers for the kids to skate with. WALKERS.
In my day, we kids didn’t behave like crumbling elderly people. We learned to fall. In the process, we learned to skate. Obviously.
