A special segment from the 1989 Ice Capades on ABC. It is hosted by Jason Bateman and Alyssa Milano. In it a Nintendo system they are playing backstage catches a virus, allowing for all of the characters to be released from the game and skate on ice.
I feel a small but familiar tinge of dread as the car rolls up the driveway.
Breathing in the acrid stench of smoke as I enter the mudroom, I take off my coat while kids run to the door, into the door, and proceed to open the door.
I can’t help but say, well played Dissolve, well played.
This… Will be interesting.
I step outside.
The cold adds another edge to the crispness I see in the snow reflecting the setting sun.
The starkness and colour begs you to take it in. I can almost feel my field of view try and bend to absorb it all. It’s how an out of body experience must feel, in the romanticized envisioning of a child.
