Marin on Ice 2016



A few hallmark heralds the holidays: dressing the Christmas tree, gift shopping meltdowns, seasonal ice rinks. Ice rinks being the most innocent harbinger, really, leaving you with a sore butt and a slightly bruised ego, at worst. Don’t let the “I’m scared my finger is going to be cut off by a skate” crowd inform you otherwise; they don’t know how to live life and have no authority on these matters. In fact, you have no business talking to them at all in the first place. But think about the rush of careening around the bend at PG-13 speed, weaving precariously between flailing ostriches of people, one obstacle away from totally taking someone out. No way shopping or putting ornaments on a tree is that thrilling. And think about the possible glory when you really start feel yourself out on the ice, when you feel comfortable enough to loosen your hips and wiggle to George Michael’s “Last Christmas,” or whatever other song is playing, and catch someone’s eye on the other side of the rink. ‘Sup. Yea, you’re killing it.
