1st change of mindI'm at a local roller rink, perusing the disturbingly overpriced roller skates and this little white girl with the most confusing hair* comes over to help. She starts asking what kind of skates I'm looking for and I tell her speed skates and try to explain what I want and then finally I say that it's for roller derby. She makes a face halfway between "oh, cool" and "what the hell?" and then says to me:
"Is it for you, or for your child?"
So I grabbed my walker and giant jar of metamucil and headed out to my double-parked Cadillac.
And then I ordered my damn skates online - yep, the skates have been ordered.
* Her hair was all corn-rowed in weird designs, crop circles, sort of and then at the base of her neck, she had a ponytail down to her waist - but the ponytail was made of ribbons and strings... confusing, right?
