Being hurt sucks. When you fall down as a kid, you do one of two things: you cry like a banshee, or you bottle that shit up and brush yourself off. In derby, though, sometimes the falls are so bad that something happens, something snaps, pops, breaks... you're down for the count. You might cry. You might get back up and pretend it's alright. You might not be able to get back up, even if you want to. Life changes, and suddenly you can't skate. What is life now?!
The end of October saw both Gravy and Tesla hurt, and they're looking forward to a No Fun November. No skating = NO FUN. Obviously. Sorta. "Time heals all" is a really crappy saying, you know that? Derby folks aren't generally the most patient people in the world, especially those who prefer to jam.
If you're hurting right now, we feel you. If you're skating right now, we envy you. Go get it for us.
Tesla and Gravy
Just two rollergirls trying to share the rollerlove from Austin, TX to the world.
