Typical Saturday at dads, having eggs and bacon for breakfast, in my polka-dotted robe. Just awesome.
We were having dinner out last night while listening to live music, and it was like soft rock songs that everyone knows. Dad and his lady friend where singing along, embarrassing me. They weren't bad, but no one else was singing along. It's not like one of those Justin Bieber concerts where the whole crowd sings the chorus with him. No, it was just them. Cute, I know. I was just slouching a tiny bit, stabbing my fork into my way-too-fudge-filled brownie, eating little crumbs at a time. Good times, but I might have had too much Cherry Coke... ugh.
Anyway, we decided to go rollerblading. I brought one of my good friends along, and he's been playing hockey for a few years now. So he's awesome at this whole rollerskating/blading technique. I have some experience.. sort of.. but it takes me a while to get going.
I was getting my blades on, and I was shifting myself around on the carpet. I was like, "Yeah? Yeah? ...Oh, come on this is progress!" I'm so bad at balancing. The technique I have down, sort of, it's just keeping my balance I have a hard time with.
I'm totally embarrassed about this, but it's probably the best part. So I'm on the blading floor, not the carpet, and I'm getting used to it, getting the feel of it, all coming back to me. I try to speed it up a little, when my dad comes from behind and starts pushing me from my butt. I get startled, and I'm like, "No! No no no no no stop it!!" I wasn't really saying it seriously enough, because he was just cracking up, and these are his exact words, "It's my job to embarrass you! It's what dads do! How am I doing?" After he pushes me for about half a lap, he lets go. I will admit, it sort of helped. Sort of. Dad's lady friend came along too, and they were holding hands. :)
I am proud to say that I actually caught up with my friend, and we were going the same speed!! That made my day. I'm serious. It's not easy for something to make my day.
But that was a happy day. :)
