I am an excellent roller skater. Very few people know this about me, not because I am modest, but because I have had trouble finding ways to work this fun fact into conversation.

boring person at party: Blah, blah, blah, my cousin's wedding.
me: I am an excellent roller skater.

Now imagine, if you will, me at the same party wearing heelies. When I find myself in a conversation that turns boring, I could turn and gracefully roll away on one heel. The boring person would then understand not only that he is boring, but also that I am probably an excellent roller skater (which I am).

Other times I have wished I was wearing heelies:

  • airport terminals without moving walkways (see Charla from The Amazing Race)

  • airport terminals with moving walkways (how awesome would that be?)

  • times when the Trini tries to make me walk up giant hills for exercise (when I get tired, I can just roll down the hill and he'll never catch me)

  • when around children (to make them jealous)

  • when being chased by cops who are not wearing heelies

Did you know that they come in adult sizes? They do. Best thing ever.
