So my first time out on my xmas roller skates was a complete disaster. Our alley/driveway is extremely rustic: It may as well be a gravel road. And I should have known better, I should have walked to the end of it and THEN put on my skates, but no, I was feeling ambitious. And distracted for one split second by a neighbor, I fell.
I sucked it up and did the promised round in the (smooth) driveway next door. Then hobbled in to see what was what. Ari’s face was classic, I should have taken a picture of that.

And after, with liberal slathering of polysporin that has pain killer in it:
Looks better but trust me, it hurts, a lot, and is bleeding through the bandaid. And it’s got some strange numbness around it too. I haven’t had a knee injury like this for so long I forgot what they were like.
I’m getting knee pads. And wrist guards.
