Something I never thought I'd do again...

is own a pair of rollerblades*.

Seeing that the rollerblading fad is in full swing here in Poland, and knowing that I do not enjoy running without purpose, Jonathan bought me a pair of rollerblades so that I may accompany him on his mile+ runs in the park. Little did he know that I am probably more speedy and more coordinated on bare feet. But I tried:


And if I weren't so afraid of losing control and running head-on into a Polish child without knowing the words for "Look out" or "Help me," maybe I could even get good enough to go on those mile+ loops around the park. Will the U.S. grant me a more comfortable practice environment? We shall see...

On the bright side (literally), at least your blades and helmet appear to have a little razzle dazzle in them. Orange. Yellow. These are things that compliment your collection well!

Haha. Gotta love the hand and elbow protectors. You're definitely ready if you fall!

I suppose I will have to get a pair myself next time, so I will look equally silly.
