My friend, Missy, and I spent much of our late seventies summers cruising up and down the sidewalk on our Roller Derby Roller Skates. Not only were the translucent red wheels beautiful, they were functional, too! We imagined ourselves as roller skating Olympians as we tirelessly practiced our elaborate routines.
Too bad there were so many cracks in the asphalt and holes in the cementbut for that, wed surely have made it all the way to the top of the roller skating world. Or at least to Xanadu!
