I Loved Roller Skating in the 1980s
Recently, our landlord repaved our parking lot. Yesterday, while walking along the newly paved blacktop, I remembered something I hadn't thought of in 25 years... "This pavement is perfect for roller skating!"
As a little girl, I loved to roller skate. Everyone in the '80s roller skated. It was just the thing to do.
I had white skates with pink wheels and stoppers, much like the skates above. Running paths, school yards or parking lots with new pavement were always my favorite to roller skate on. That smooth surface made it easy to maintain my balance. It's funny what was important to me at age 12.
