Wintering

Jan 29, 2022

Some ice, and some snow.

It occurred to me, watching Lorelei try to ice skate, how absurdly hard it is to learn unless you’re out on the ice all the time, and even then it’s such an odd activity. Here’s some tiny stilts that make you go much faster, unless your legs get a little bit further apart in which case you’ll fall directly on your head on the hardest thing we could find that wasn’t a rock.

On the topic of skates, I ordered some for myself. While we don’t skate often I figure at this point my feet are this size until I die, so why not get some decent skates. Fate has decided this is a Winter 2022 — 2023 goal for me instead.

It’s fine. I’ll go slip on the front walk and hit my head on that instead.
