Wah! There’s only one athletic activity I wish I could do! Skateboarding. It looks like crazy fun, as long as you can avoid the scrapes, abrasions, bruises, contusions, and broken bones that goes along with it. If it wasn’t for my aversion to blood and pain, you’d see me out on the front sidewalk every day. I’d be flyin’ on mah’ skatebo’d, bro’. Ah be baaad…
I think you should know that today – June 21 – is national “Go Skateboarding Day”. You know what that means. You’ll just have to get the thing down out of the garage, oil up those wheels, head for the nearest driveway – and go for a glide.
Of course, I know perfectly well you’re just humoring me. The only person I know who may actually be following my advice is my great-nephew Brian Ford, a dedicated skateboarder, if there ever was one. Unless he’s hampered by a new cast or crutches, I’m sure he’s be out there risking his life on his longboard.
Now, no more excuses. Go Skateboarding!
