It was purple and white and green and orange and blue!

No, I'm not talking about Joseph's Technicolor Dreamcoat, I'm talking about the gnarly bruise the exact same size of a roller skate wheel on my thigh! And an invisible bruise right smack in the middle of my fanny!!! Youch!

That's right, I went roller skating last night with the young women. I really can't skate. No. I'm not saying that I'm not good at it, I'm saying I really don't. know. how! Even as a kid, I was a wall-hugger. You know the type? They skate super slow and hold on to the wall for dear life! Well that was and still is me!

Hopefully no one had a camera with them last night! If they did, I will surely be on funniest home videos! All night long I was doing this: shuffle- shuff- shuff- shuff. Then yelling "Whoa! Whoa! Whoa! Aaaah!" Then I'd do the wall- cling again. It was fun though. And I got lots of exercise. You can imagine how my heart rate was going up and up when my arms were constantly doing the wind-mill / Saturday night fever moves. But sort-of not-on-purpose. I had to keep them moving to keep myself from face-planting!

That picture is sort of how I looked when I got the tush-bruise....only I was wearing gross public skates and my socks were way cuter!

And, I'm having a hard time coming up with a roller skating song. All I can think of is Nene's post about Ladies lovin' the feel of the wheel from that Flight of the Concords song. I'm not sure I can post that one, little ears- you know! Hmm. I'll see what I can come up with...How about a little Night Fever by the Bee Gees. Yeah. That sounds groovy!

Yowza! Glad you're still alive after that horrible roller skating injury, lol. I would have loved to watched it all go down though!

I'm sorry you got hurt. I don't think I have rollerskated since I was in 9th grade. I would probably be a wall hugger now.
