One thing I like about myself is my desire to try new things. The more new experiences you can work into your life, the better you know yourself and the more closely you are acquainted with the world in which you’re living.
Today I discovered that I can walk on my hands. Hooray new physical achievements. This convinced me I had the core muscles in place to try rollerblading, so I went out after work and purchased a pair of rollerblades. Now I’m committed! Hooray new outlets for cardio!
Things I learned through this new experience:
1. Don’t think something is easy just because a five year-old can do it backwards.
2. Lace up your skates tighter than a redneck’s blue jeans.
3. Some dogs think that if a human being is moving faster than a slow walk that it must be play-with-the-human time.
4. Saving money by not investing in knee/elbow pads and a helmet, though frugal, was perhaps not my most erudite moment.
So, all you people with functional inner ears…give me tips for the next time I go out on how to make this enjoyable pastime work a little more smoothly.
