Rollerblade Girl's Skating Mix

Before I was Auntie Social, I was rollerblade girl.  I even considered “Rollerblade Girl” as a derby name. I’m that skater in your town that keeps zipping past you while you’re dining on main street or shopping at the farmer’s market, and I’ve always got music blasting. Not only is the pace of the music a good motivator to keep skating hard and fast, but a good distraction when people who gawk or yell things out at you. And believe me, they do. One time while skating in Chico I passed a group of skate boarders loitering in a grocery store parking lot.  They were all sitting on a curb and as they saw me approach quickly collaborated something, and when I passed all launched their skateboards into the street at me. I masterfully performed a hop, skip and a jump and was on my way with a “Nice Try Boys” out of my mouth, …though to this day- I wish I had picked up one of their skate boards and booked it like hell yelling, “You can’t catch me!!!” Next time, …next time….

Anyway, wondering what I’m listening to as I whiz past? Here’s a taste.
