Once I regain my bearings, these bad boys'll be a boon to—BARRELFULL OF B-WORDS—my getting around on my own. Just felt like sharing, to brighten up somebody else's day.
Don't know how you do it. I can't last 20 minutes in this florida heat during midday on skates. I"m guessing you bought them from sports authority with that new policy they have?
