I Want These For My Birthday

Okay, these are too funky. I want a pair of them for myself. I may just have to break down and buy them for myself.

A few days ago I saw a little girl skate across the floor of a department store. I saw her head glide by but what she was actually skating on was obscured by racks of clothing. She noticed that I was watching her and when she got to the end of the aisle and I could see her feet, she was walking normally on what appeared to be regular sneakers. I thought I was crazy but a few minutes later I saw her do it again. This time, when she popped out of the aisle, I had caught up with her and saw her gliding and then coming to a sudden complete stop before walking again...

Yeah, they're kinda silly, but they look fun.

I actually have a pair! I bought them in July when they were on sale for Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale. I brought them to Disneyland with me. I love them! I have the Evolutions, which are on the higher-quality end... They have the built in grind plate and better wheels than the one in your pic. I totally recommend them; they're a blast. (They come in up to a guy's size 12.)

Why am I not surprised you have a pair? :)

Damn, now I really want some. I could even afford them right now. Next conslutting job.

I've been ruthlessly suppressing the urge to buy a pair. They still look like fun.
