[repost] Skates are Fiction

I seemed to be running out of time every day lately. It’s bedtime before I know it, and I feel like I have done nothing productive. Which made me think as I looked out of in the silence of the night in Benidorm how different my life now compared to when I was a child.

Back when my brother and I lay on the grass and looking at the dark starry night and dreams of shoes with wheels and asphalted road like it was something out of our fantasy.

Skates are fiction

I know the wheels are huge. It’s not easier than inline skates, but it’s way more comfortable to move in them or my other quad skate with smaller wheels.

Yes, back in the early ’90s when people in the west goes around with cellphones in hand, me and my brother (and best friend at the time) thought roller skates was fiction.

Years later. Here I am at 28 (back at 2012) living my in my childhood fantasy in another country.

picture was taken back in 2012 when I was 28 and slimmer. Cries 😭

Have a Fun Friday!

  1. Great you and your brother had fun back those days πŸ˜‰πŸ˜ that was a moment to cherish, ever thought to go again on wheels ? πŸ˜‰

    1. I sure will, when the lockdown is over and after buying a new one because sadly, these wheels were stolen 😒

  2. How do we know those childhood activities would turn into nostalgia some day. Skating was so much fun years back. Thank you for reviving those memories through your post! πŸ™‚

  3. Childhood memories are always nostalgic. Roller skating is a beautiful art. Beautiful to see people skating through the street. It is a rare scene in our place. I fear to skate as a child, may be I slip down. Your pics are pretty enough. Cute girl πŸ˜πŸ’•β€οΈ

    1. Thanks Olivia. πŸ˜„
      I don’t think I would dare skate in India, especially not using the outfit I’m wearing. I won’t even do it in my own country. It’s only because I feel safer in Spain.
      Still two weeks after learning to skate, I broke three fingers from falling. Ouch 😨

        1. Haha πŸ˜€ I’m only partly Spanish by blood, but I grew up in the Philippines.
          It did hurt a lot πŸ˜₯ but I didn’t realize how broken they were until we were home 2 hours later. It was swollen and I couldn’t move them πŸ˜€ It was because I felt too confident and experimented before mastering the wheels.
          Karma πŸ˜‚

    1. Me too! The skates I wore here was left behind in a companion’s garage and said companion did not inform us when everything in the garage was “thrown away” (I doubt they never check the box contents) I miss it πŸ™
