All Skate. All Skate.

Life has gotten a bit hectic recently. Well, really, the entire month of May was hectic and on the crazy side. I'm not complaining. Life is how you view it. Burden, gift, conundrum, fantasy, reality, grind, free fall, journey, chore. Whatever you want. It's all up to you. Don't look to me for answers. You can bet your sweet bippy I wouldn't be sitting here typing blindly to the outer limits of cyberspace if I had any.

The only thing I can offer is to transport you back to a simpler time. A time of feathered hair, Aqua Net, and a plastic comb in your back pocket. A time of Pac Man, MTV, roller rinks and parachute pants. Blue eyeshadow, valley girls and trans ams. It's an all skate, people, and the kings of the rink are in full swing.

All skate. *sigh*

Pac Man is still the best video game ever. My brother had a trans am. I loved that car. And who didn't have parachute pants? Thanks for the little light-hearted moment.

Natalie - yeah, *sigh* all skate. Madonna's Crazy for You will be on for the couple's skate a little later.

Ava Quinn said...

Wow, a brother with a trans am. I bet you thought he was the bee's knees!

I did not have parachute pants, and I wear that as a badge of pride almost every day. (Though when I'm alone it's like a burning empty hole in my soul.)

My husband never learned to skate. I need a replacement partner. :)

I never had parachute pants, either, but I'm not sure if I wanted them or not. I thought they were too loud. :)

Oh Lord, I remember that song. Have videos changed or what? Those were the days of hair and words you could understand. Now it's gold and naked girls.

How funny. Thanks for the flashback.

Natalie, I've got a guy named Ceasar all oiled up and ready to escort you around the rink. Just say the word.

Ava Quinn said...

Any time, Helen!

Natalie J. Damschroder said...

Sounds great! I'm ready!

Hey, I taught aerobics to that song. It's a classic.

Ava Quinn said...
