public works

Thank you, Chicago Parks District, for providing the most timelessly endearing activity possible: free ice skating. Dressed in old workout clothes (anticipating no company at the rink), I was pleasantly surprised by the gaggles of teenagers who make up for lack of skating skills with a vigorous desire to impress their dates; also, families with kiddos who’re better on blades than I; and, most surprisingly, other 20-somethings(!) Plus highly entertaining rink guards mostly interested in improving their spins.
