I admit, I was not in favour. But then I realised I'm not the boss of the world (I know, it was a shock to me too) and everyone should be able to have fun, even if that consists of laying flat on your back on the ice.
'Fun' actually turned out to be ice-skating, and not the falling down kind either.
Not pictured: me, skating backwards, holding hands with vsquared.
Also not pictured: my arms, caning, twelve hours later.
