|When I walked into the lobby it seemed a little warmer than usual. Then I looked out at the rink.|
|I could barely see the stick and puck guys through the condensation on the dasher board plexi and fog swirling around their legs.|
|57 degrees and 91 %. Any higher humidity and I would've needed foul weather gear and an umbrella.|
I'd bought my ice pass so there was nothing to do but get on with it. The ice was predictably slow--especially noticeable if you were doing spins, but very forgiving for jump landings--yes, yes, Madame skating director, no jumps above Free Style 3 during a public!
I caught a toe pick while practicing dance tuck behinds and landed flat on my butt. Didn't hurt a bit. This leads me to Adult skater observation Nr 1; How to tell if you're old:
If you fall in front of a bunch of people and they laugh and make derisive comments, then you're still young. If they get panicky looks on their faces and start rapidly skating towards you, then you're old.
Could've been worse. At least I didn't flop down in a puddle.
