Q-Tip Sk8 Maintenance


In the process of performing rudimentary skate maintenance, one very small – but necessary – skate bolt managed to disappear.

This gave Tami and I the opportunity to:

  • broach the subject of replacing Tami’s 10 year old skates with ones that have standard parts
  • discuss expanding Tami’s repair toolkit beyond 2 q-tips
  • consider skating on 3 wheels instead of 4 if the missing bolt cannot be located
  • talk philosophically about the concept of “letting go”

Fortunately, the missing bolt was discovered INSIDE of Tam’s car….and we proceeded to enjoy a delightful skate, great vibe and apres-sk8 foods at the BWI loop – as only longtime dear friends can do.
