mambo on ice


I went ice skating in Streatham last night, hadn't been on skates since 1995. Managed to stay upright, but very wobbly. An old man in a yellow rink jacket was looking after we newbies, and did some little dances when he wasn't picking us up off the ice. Funny, the music hasn't changed since I skated at Skate King in Bellevue in the 80s. The only missing tunes were the Ghostbusters theme and Falco.
