Hoodlum

As I bent to wash my hands in the sink at work the other day, I looked at the soap dispenser and thought that as a kid I probably used to be one of janitors worst nightmares in the restroom. I found, when I was about 9 or 10 and having delusions of grandeur regarding my epic rise as an ice skating star, that one of the best things to do in the restroom was to pump as much liquid soap on the floor as possible. Then you’d hang on the sides of two sinks and maniacally swish your legs in the goo and slide and slide and slide.

I think I had a good go at it then…and it’s a good thing too because thinking that I did makes me much less inclined to want to relive my youth when I eye the soap dispensers in the library restroom.

    And to think you have problems with high heels.

    I once dreamed of ice skating fame. And of being an olympic swimmer. Combining two important facts about me, but we’ll leave those undisclosed for now.
