Don’t know why it took me this long to make this connection, but the city’s downtown ice skating rink, also known as “Holidays on Ice,” shares the same name as a book by David Sedaris.
Being from North Carolina, and the occasional listener of NPR, I know about this Sedaris fella. “Me Talk Pretty One Day” is the first (and only) book that a lot of people I know have read. Not all of it is for a family audience. For those who may not know, Sedaris grew up in the Raleigh area.
Ice skating can be too, especially if you’re watching me attempt to skate. The rink is open every day except Christmas.
Speaking of Christmas, we’ve got a fun little story on Santa coming tomorrow, and another anecdote from Santa for this here blog.
