    ...mostly On My Butt!

    I have ice skated....  and spend far more time on my azz than on my feet!  I have NO idea how anyone stays upright on those silly things.  For that matter, considering the trouble I have staying on my feet, I'm amazed by those who can do the fancy stuff!

    It Was Fun

    I first ice skated when I was 10. I held on to the wall when I skated at first, but I soon was able to skate perfectly. I remember skating again when I was 12 for a school elective. I had fun ice skating. I haven't done it since I was 12.

    Slush Puppy Time!

    And it was awful! It feels so unnatural.I tried it at a friend's birthday party and I just hated it so I had to sit it out on the side lines with her mother. It wasn't all bad though, I got to drink slush puppies until we had to go home. ^_^

    When I Was a Child

    I went ice skating a few times when I was younger and thinking back I'm surprised at how good I was at it.  I think if I tried now I would fall flat on my face though. It's a really good form of exercise and a lot of fun too so I wouldn't mind taking it up again.  The...

    Before I Could Walk

    My father was a speed skater so we grew up on ice lol. The big competition was to try and get him off his feet on the ice. There were times when there would be about 10 kids hanging off him and we still couldnt get him down lol. My first pair of skates was a tiny little pair of...

    I Have Fallen, Too!

      In fact the number of times I have skated is probably matched (or even exceeded) by the number of times I have fallen.  Great fun, though I'm usually pretty sore the next day!

    And I Wasn't Too Shabby:)

    When I was a really little kid, like around when I started Kindergarten, I went to an ice skating party for a friend that I looked up to. Seeing everyone skating around including my friend, I didn't want to be left out! I wanted to be a big kid like everyone else there. Plus...

    I'm A Figure Skater

    I've been skating for like ten years now and I can do some double jumps and other stuff. To me, skating doesn't feel much different from walking anymore. I guess I've been skating for so long that it feels natural... I have a story too... One day when I was 7 years old I was...

    Lots of Times

    Whenever I can possibly get a chance to, I'm off to the Skating arena in the city. We actually had an outdoor ice rink in the market square during the christmas season which I never got around to skating on. I was told it was pretty good though. I may go to the ice centre next...

    I Went Once...for About 5 Minutes

    And my friends got cold so we left.  It was actually summer so they had shorts on.  My 4 year old has been begging to go skating and ice skating.  If only I had money to send her to lessons.

    ....Even though I'm horrible at it. I've gone skating with my friends before, just for fun. And they decided to push me and run into me to see how many times I would fall. I thought that was really rude. But anyway, I fell like 12 times and the next day I bruises all over my...
