The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly

The Good: Mr Renn and I got out to get some exercise today.


The Bad: Exercise of choice was rollerblading. I'm about as gifted at rollerblading as I imagine I would be at bull riding.


The Ugly: Well, what happens to untalented bull-riders? Both of my kneecaps are painfully swollen and I have a bruise in an area that I simply cannot/will not photograph. And all who witnessed my fall from grace insist that I simply have to blog about it. Well, it's a good thing I'm not trying to convince the world how nimble I am, eh?

I came across my old rollerblades just yesterday, and it gave me to reminisce about the last time I went rollerblading...in Provo Canyon, not knowing how to brake (or even jump into the grass), and a huge crash in front of way too many people. My hands were hamburger meat, and my pride was completely deflated.

I'm giving them away.

Ooh! Ouch! Wow, after about a decade I kind of wonder how it would go for me. It's kind of a scary thought. You were brave to even try it.

Ouch. I'm sorry! I'm also envious, I want to rollerblade so bad but I don't have a pair of skates (that and I'm 8 months pregnant).
I like how your skirt matches the background material. :) Good photo-taking! ;)

Oh sorry Em! We've all been there. So much for all those jr high days spent at Classic Skating, huh?

Holy cow Em! Nice battle scars! How are you at ice skating by the way?;)

I'm so sorry! Lets think up a good story of how that could have happened...

I'm thinking you should really go with the bull riding incident.

OH, I feel you on this one. I have a nice scar on my knee that proves I am NOT a talented rollerblader.

Ouch, yet another reason why exercise is overrated..
