So Saturday there was Freestyle right before Public. I had my skates on and I strolled into the rink area just to check the temperature and see who was doing what. (You know we all do that.)
I glanced over at the ice monitor who I didn't know and gave her a smile. She was looking at me with an expression of concern.
She laughed lightly in return. "I wondered, because there's only 10 minutes left to freestyle. I thought it would be a little short."
"And I thought you thought I was a newbie in rental skates," I joked back. We were getting along nicely.
"Oh, no," she was serious now,"Our rink doesn't have skates as nice as those."
Well, THANK YOU anonymous skating mom.
I hope all the skating moms at your rinks are as nice as the ones at mine.
