Crushed Ego


Dateline Today - Rinako invited me to go along with her and some friends to go ice skating. I haven't been ice skating since college. I thought it would take me awhile to get used to it again, but boy was I in for a big shock. They didn't have the right size skates so I chose to go with the slightly smaller size. I put them on and they seemed okay. But I was so surprised by how week my ankles were. I could barely walk in the skates. And getting my balance on the ice was nearly impossible. I know I'm getting older and all, but I was quite crushed by how horrible I was. So I stumbled, and slid and looked alot like a baby giraffe trying to stand for the first time. It was horrible. After half an hour the zamboni came out, and everyone had to clear the ice. I went back to the skate desk to see if they had any of the right size yet. They did. But I wasn't expecting my skating to miraculously change. But it did. I got back out on the ice and was swooshing by people and it was wonderful. I'm still much better on roller skates, but at least I got my confidence and my ego back. But my ankles could only take about 2 hours total. And I bet tomorrow I am unable to walk. But who cares, my ego was salvaged.
