Broken: Day 56 (Returning to the Scene)

Broken: Day 56 (Returning to the Scene)

Not MY skating rink
Not MY skating rink

Last Saturday night I took Loverman roller skating for the first time since I broke my ankle. I was excited, but I was also a little scared about the feelings I would have while I was there…

  • Would I cry because I wouldn’t be able to roller skate (I didn’t, but I did afterward, and I kind of am a little bit now — I think it might be a touch of PMS, though 😉 )?
  • Would I just sit there, alone and bored, waiting for it to be over because I didn’t want to stop Loverman from having such a good time?
  • Would anyone remember me?
  • Would I get jealous of Loverman because everyone was paying attention to him and not me?

The second I walked in the door (hobbled really, because I’m still on these pesky crutches) all of our friends rushed over to us! The feeling was amazing! Until roller skating, I never felt like I belonged to a group. Loverman was given his overdue Christmas present (I mentioned in a previous post that there is a girl there that I think has a crush on him) and I got to sit and talk with different people the entire evening. In fact, so much that the time absolutely flew by and before I knew it, Adult Skate was over for the night. And I hadn’t really gotten to watch Loverman skate at all…

I thought I would be more sad because I wouldn’t be able do what I most like to do (besides knockin’ da boots 😉 ). I never thought that the people that we skate with would miss me. I knew they would miss Loverman! He’s such an awesome skater and a whole bunch of the guys like skating with him. But I figured that I would just fade away like an evening shadow. I don’t know why… We’ve been skating together there pretty much every Saturday night for the last two years! Why wouldn’t they miss me, too?

Now, as I sit here writing about it, all I can think about is how I want my ankle to get better so I can go skating again! Oh, how I miss my skate nights with my sexy Loverman…  We have this backwards skate step that we do together during the slow, couples songs that no one else can do… And I didn’t realize until now how much I miss “my skatin’ peeps”.

I know I will get better and that everything will be “back to normal” soon, but sitting around waiting is driving me batty!
