there's something about a man on skates...

"people keep telling me that i fall in love too easily - that i should protect my heart, that i shouldn't wear my heart on my sleeve...i fall in love at least 20 times a day. i fall in love with the sky and the sun and flowers and my children. i fall in love with smiles, with the music on the radio and the french fries and dr. pepper. i fall in love with the sound of laughter, blue jeans, accents...sometimes i fall in love with complete strangers, especially the ones holding hands and kissing in public. the ones who aren't afraid to be in love with the idea of being in love either. i don't mind the pain of unrequited love so much, because i think they're wrong. love looks good on me."--natalie anne erlanson

I went to the local skate center again today with my cousin and sister.
And there I saw a boy in the middle of the rink dancing. On roller skates. He was moving to the beat and doing crazy moves. And I fell in love.
It's one thing if a boy can dance. But it's another thing if a boy can dance on skates.
The boy at the rink looked a little like this fellow; minus the comb over, tights, turtleneck, and ancient skates. And he was cuter. Okay, he doesn't really look like this guy, but I'll never forget him.

And when I left the rink. My heart broke just a little.
