    Should Be An Olympic Sport

    I love it, when my grandmother was living, she used to practically lick the floors clean lol, she had every kind of cleaner you could imagine on them, and after she put it on they were always slippery and great for a slide or two.  Always made me laugh when I would go...

    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.

    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!!!

    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

    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.

    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!!!

    Cool Topic

    Besides loving the photo for this, Tommy is a crush of mine. Sadly he has never returned the feeling. Lol I love to slide across the floor with my dog behind me. I wind him up, running in place, then We take off. It's so much fun.

    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...

    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.
