just doin' the time warp
i hopped on a bus yesterday with forty-three of J10 and R13's youth groupies..
went to the Big Smoke and wound up at the zoo, the underwater world and..
twenty tears later:
i've still got it.
i can skate forwards.
i can even skate backwards (you shoulda seen R13's incredulous look as i grabbed her hands and skated her around the rink)
i can even twirl.
and after about the sixth circuit around the rink, i started getting that leg-crossing-over-motion for going around corners.
just like a friday-night-teenager.
it's just a jump to the left.
and a step to the r-i-i-i-g-h-t...
and i even bought myself a caramel chew for reasons of nostalgia.
but it didn't taste as frozen as it used to.
