This gave Tami and I the opportunity to:
- broach the subject of replacing Tami’s 10 year old skates with ones that have standard parts
- discuss expanding Tami’s repair toolkit beyond 2 q-tips
- consider skating on 3 wheels instead of 4 if the missing bolt cannot be located
- talk philosophically about the concept of “letting go”
Fortunately, the missing bolt was discovered INSIDE of Tam’s car….and we proceeded to enjoy a delightful skate, great vibe and apres-sk8 foods at the BWI loop – as only longtime dear friends can do.
