Memories of an Olympian

When I was a little girl my sister and I would spend our summers at my aunt Donna's house in Queens with our two cousins (Nicole and Christie).  I know we were really big time summering in the next borough over, but they had a backyard and a pool which was a lot more than what we had.  So we'd spend a lot of time there.

My cousin Nicole is four years older than me so she was already too cool for school and couldn't be bothered hanging out with us unless it was to do something terribly embarrassing.  So it was pretty much me, my sister Meaghan, and Christie doing ridiculous things.

One of those ridiculous things was pretending to be Olympic ice skaters.

One winter day during the Olympics when we were kids, we went into my aunt's underwear draw and snatched up some of her satin nighties.  I feel like no one was ever supervising us, we kind of just made our own fun.  So we took her nighties and put them on and we used rubber bands to tighten them in the back and we put on our slipperiest socks and ice skated all around the house to Les Miserables.

Picture it, 3 scrawny little girls maybe 8, 6, and 4 in lingerie and socks doing a half-assed triple lutz in the dining room to On My Own.

I hope my girls and their cousins get into it just like we did.

So funny, my BFF and I did that too! Well, I'm not sure about the longerie and les mis, but we definitely choreographed ice skating routines in socks on the shiny wood floors of her house. Oh the memories. :)

Funny, I just did some half-assed triple lutzes in my socks with my eleven year old daughter the other night. Minus the lingerie:)
