Public Notice straps on the skates, picks some flowers for mom, and finds out if it is eligible to donate to the Mother's Milk Bank .
Don't forget Mother's Day: Sun, May 14. That's some derned fine advice this time of year. What with the school year coming to a close and vacations looming on the horizon, it's easy to imagine letting the most holy of holidays slip through the cracks, finding yourself on Sat, May 13, head hung low, desperately trying to FTD away the guilt. This year, we've received so many mom-centric notices that we've decided to print them here early to help with your planning.
Some Motherly Advice ...
Holding hands with a guy named "Spider" during Ladies' Choice, we made our way 'round the rink for the umpteenth time to "Radar Love," a particularly hormone-heating little number, only to catch a glimpse of Connie -- the "Ballbreaker" -- our ex-est bestest friend making out with the guy she knew we really liked. "Spider" yanked us with his sweaty palm as he caught the craning of our neck around the far turn. Our dreams were shattered, like the teeny points of red, green, yellow, and blue reflected twinklies from the disco light above, turning in time with our race around the love-rink, only to be run over by the 12-year-old dorks in our wake. Oh, the days of adolescent skating glory. Remember a few of your own? Why not take a creep back into those salacious salad days, or just come out to support this cool benefit event that'll keep the kids entertained at the same time: Community Options presents Wheels for Wheels, this Sat, Apr 29, at the Tony Burger Center. For $10 you can skate, skateboard, or blaze away the day in your wheelchair in the Open Roll/Skate, dig the tricked out wonders of local celeb mascots (?!) and skaters -- including Fritz Blaw, the Tony Hawk of the postering set, or learn a lot from the Safety Clinics and Wheelchair Dancing Demo. More than 5,000 folks are expected and we figure that to be close to 20,000 wheels rolling all in line (groan) for a real good time and a very good cause. http://www.comop.org or 451-4450.
