Life Lessons

It's only 10:30am and already I've learned some valuable life lessons today.
1) Rollerblades and train tracks do NOT mix.
2) I do not have a built in GPS system in my brain, or a compass for that matter.
3) When rollerblading in a town other than the one you grew up in, it is unwise to choose your route by simply turning whenever the inclination strikes you. 30 minutes later when you determine you are indeed lost you will not remember "right, left, left, left, right, left, right, right, left, right, left, left, right, right" and will no longer be able to go back the way you came.
4) When lost in a creepy Pleasantville like subdivision a cyclist bearing saddle bags on his bike is your new bestfriend. Follow him, he will lead you back to normalcy.
5) Rollerblades and train tracks especially don't mix after you've been rollerblading for an hour and have lost all coordination.
6) When you leave the house with the intention of only rollerblading for a half hour, and don't return again until an hour and a half later, your body will like you a little less. Don't take it personally.
