I’m going to skate this afternoon. It will be indoors, of course, which is about the only kind of skating anyone does around here anymore. I know it will be a blast. I love to skate, even if it is a lot like my job, mostly going in circles, traction dubious.
Roughly 150 people from my church will be there. My parish does this every year. We spend about an hour on the ice and about another hour drinking hot chocolate, devouring doughnuts, and reminding one another that this is the time of year when we should make time for more skating, more laughs, more doughnuts.
