I didn't turn into stone when I looked at her but.... I do feel a sudden stiffening occurring.  :-"   Better try it again with a mirror this time.

No other good place to drop this, but I didn't want to start a new thread for it.

The divorced couple they're talking to were both former students of mine at WPU.  He had the class in the Spring, and she took it over the summer.  They got married in between.



They're also both pretty active in the local roller derby scene here, and I have friends whose kids were/are on the team coached by the guy, and other friends who are married to some of her old teammates from the Carolina Rollergirls.  Somehow, I have never been to a roller derby event.

I went to a roller derby event when I was a kid.  That would have been in the early to mid 1970s in San Diego.

One of my daughter's friends was a very competitive ice skater when she was young.  She's now about 29, and along the way she converted her ice skating skills into a spot on a roller derby team or something in NYC.  I was surprised to hear that roller derby was still a thing.

When I did fieldwork, one of the seasonal techs revealed she played on a derby team.. I asked her how she got into it. She told me there was a poster for tryouts at the tattoo parlour where she frequented....
My doctor wrote me a prescription for daily sex.

My wife insists that it says dyslexia but what does she know.
