Anyone who was wondering? Roller skating is exactly the same as it was in 1982. It was so completely bizzare!!
I walked in with Kylee and there is the concession area with the tables - a birthday party in progress with a cake, pitchers of soda and pizza.
There were arcade games, including Ms. PacMan. OMG, I loved Ms. PacMan! Then the cave like area with the roller rink - the ugly dark carpet - the bench you sat on to put your skates on....
the gaggles of girls in flocks giggling... the boys who were ZOOMING around and yelling stuff to bug the girls and try to make them fall down.... it's like I was 12 again.
Only with much more body hair and the fat roll around my middle named Sheila.
Kylee had a great time - she was red faced and sweaty by the end of it and I didn't fall down, so I'd say it was a success.
