    Sooo Much Fun

    I have the best kitchen floor for it. Another fun thing is stacking up pillows against the wall and getting my cat to chase a toy across the floor really fast so he slides and bounces off the pillows

    Love It!!

    I love putting on some socks and sliding across the kitchen floor!! I sometimes feel like laminating the floors throughout my house purely for the purpose of sock skiing - in fact it's so great I think they should make it an Olympic event!!!

    Weeee

    I used to love to do this as a kid.  I've actually picked this "habit" up again recently.  Now, the kids and I have races across the kitchen floor.  My youngest is the fastest, but I have way more style.

    Polished Linolium

    If your grandmother was like mine, the floors were swept 10 times a day, and mopped just as frequently. Except in the hall; it was "dust mopped" with Pledge and a dry mop! The hall lead to the bathroom, 3 bedrooms, and a wide, dead-end wall. This long hallway was...

    Sock Skiing makes me feel like a graceful figure skater and really, really fast! I can even do flips still, at my old age! Do a run and slide across the kitchen floor - hit the carpeted area and jump! It's easy and fun.

    Should Be An Olympic Sport

    Yes, Especially Freshly Waxed ...

    Yes, especially freshly waxed wood floors or laminate floors.  Lenolium and tile is great too, although sometimes the fall can be too much.  I also love sliding down stairs in sleeping bags!

    Direct Route

    We have a laminate floor in the hallway, then in the kitchen and then into the dining room, you can actually ski from the front door to the patio doors using that route. Who needs those heelies when you have laminate!!!

    Last Time..

    I'd waxed my hardwood and decided to do some sock skiing when I slipped and took a nasty hard fall. Needless to say, lesson = learned.

    Linoleum

    I have these dress socks and boot socks that when freshly worn, extremely slippy on my kitchen floor, so I love getting a running start, and even though it kills my joints, slide across the kitchen on my way for coffee and to grab my boots from the dining room.
