.They do this thing, where a bunch of families go together. It's mostly moms and young children, but none of those ladies got up to hit the floor. They were having too much fun laughing at the one dad who never skated before.
.It didn't take any time at all, before the kids started to join hands and make a long human whip. I was precariously teetering along, near the wall, when the kid at the end shouted, "Mr. Craver, gimme your hand!" Ha!! Do I look like some kind of suicidal lemming to you? No, Missie... I earned these few gray hairs by NOT having young whippersnappers (Good choice of words, eh?), fling me to a certain demise with such recklessness. No, I'll stay vertical, thank-you-very-much. The human body was not meant to go that fast without being in some kind of protective cage.

.The important thing is... I never fell. Winner!
