I learned three important lessons last night:
I was pleasantly surprised to find that Skate Zone hasn't changed a whole lot since I was last there over a decade ago. There are a few more coats of paint on the walls -- and some of those walls have many coats of paint on them -- but beyond that it's basically the same place. They still do the limbo, they still play the number game, and skaters still dance the YMCA. A good time was had by all.
- I was never a great roller skater. Age has not improved my skills.
- Helping a toddler learn to roller skate can be very rough on one's back.
- Robbie is a surprisingly good skater. The little turkey hardly seemed to flinch with wheels on his feet.
