Skate World8:30 AM
Throughout middle-school and the early years of high school, there was one place where everyone went, because everyone was welcome. Every Friday night, we’d deck ourselves out in our finest dudes (cute spaghetti-strap tank top & flares), grab our rollerblades & beg one of our parents to cart our asses out to Troy Michigan, to Skate World. From 7:30 to 11pm, we somehow managed to dance to pop music while skating and eat crap from the vending machine for dinner. We tried to look slick and not fall during “girls skate” to show-off in front of the boys, and we always skated with each other during “couples skate”.
Saturday night, my friend Sara and her boyfriend Dan treated Kyle and to a trip down memory lane. We headed out to Skate World on “Teen Night”, and nothing has changed, except the music is even worse-but it was so much fun! We all tried out skates, Sara switched to blades half-way thought the night, and we ate pizza, played ski-ball in the arcade and laughed at how old we were in comparison to the teenagers surrounding us. These kids were crazy! They would zip around you and jump and flip like it was nothing. We seriously had a blast and it was nice to get a little subtle workout in on a Saturday night. I cannot wait to get a group of people to go again, it was a blast!
