Dead Bug…

A few days ago, I was looking through a stack of mail and noticed a local community magazine sort of deal. I thought it might be interesting, so I flipped through it. It wasn't interesting. It basically just profiled several businesses and contained coupons and offers for places around town.

One coupon especially caught my eye. A coupon for free admission to a local skating rink. Score. Actually it was two coupons for free admission. Double Score.

Today boyfriend and I had planned to wash our cars or go ride bikes or do something fun since we both had free afternoons. It started raining, and so I remembered my coupons.

So we went to this skating rink, and can I just say I felt like I had stepped back into 1995 at elementary school skate night. I was the skating queen, young and sweet, only….7.

We had so much fun skating around with the funky lights and disco ball. I did miss one thing though---at my elementary school skate night we played “Dead Bug”. Cheesy music would play and then as soon as it stopped you had to hit the floor and play dead. Morbid? Maybe….Did I win the game as being the most realistic looking dead bug? Yes!!!

Tomorrow I will be paying for this skating day…as I already am having trouble walking up stairs….Supposedly you can burn like 1200 calories in 2 hours of skating. Awesome!…too bad we went out for pizza afterwards which probably put me back into negative calories burned…fail.

Hope everyone has a great Friday and weekend!


  1. That does sound like so much fun. Skating is a blast! I don't even know where our skating rink is located.

  2. hahaha.. We never played dead bug, and I'm kind of jealous! Sounds like you guys had a great time!
