I had the humiliating experience of renting roller skates; the young (& cute) boy behind the counter teased me so about my BIG feet. So when I had the chance to go ice-skating, I told my mom how embarrassed I was to rent size 10 ice skates and to my surprise and delight, she offered to buy me skates! Of course then she told me she didn’t want me to go ice-skating for fear I would fall! I loved those beautiful large size ice skates. Thanks Mom!
