Spring can't come fast enough!

And let me tell you why...

For Christmas, "Santa" gave me the best present ever! As soon as "Santa" (read: my loving GF) handed me the box covered in wrapping paper, I almost yelled it out: "Size 10 Heelys!" ... and that's what it was!

Aren't they beautiful?!

Yes, in my early 30s, I was dying for a pair of those cool sneakers with the wheel in the sole. I just think they are the coolest thing.

For someone as lazy as I am — and believe me, I'm lazy — these are the perfect footwear. Ever had one of those days when you're just like "Ugh. I have to walk places. It would be so much easier if I could just roll from here to there"? I have a lot of those days.

Well, voilĂ !

The tough part: I have to wait til the snow melts and the sidewalks are clear. (Hence, spring can't come fast enough.) In the meantime, I've been practicing in the hallway at my place, trying to find my "balance point," just like the Heelys instructional video has told me to.

And I know I can forget about using them at places like the mall or Disney World (they're worried about lawsuits and liability and blah, blah, blah), but I'm sure I can find plenty of places to use them.

You never know ... you might even see me wheeling (or Heel-ing) right past you!

Call me cruel, but whenever I see a kid wheeling around on those, I can't help but hope he or she falls on their face.

I would never wish that upon you, though.
