Skateboards are the new comb-over for men chasing their youth

According to the NY Post, skateboards are the new comb-over for men chasing their youth.1I object to the headline’s use of “comb-over.” It makes skateboards sound uncool. What’s strange is the article presents it as quite the opposite. Hmm. Maybe this is a case of a wannabe headline author dissing the point of the article. Also, these whippersnappers appear to be a little young to be having their midlife crises, but regardless, I approve of their mode of transportation. :-) Hahaha! Who knew this was even a thing?! :-D

Jamison and I head to Maryhill 2015

Jamison and I headed up the Gorge yesterday to watch the finals of the Maryhill Festival of Speed. It’s nice to live so close.

Fortunately, the temperatures only got to 103, with overcast and a breeze. I can’t imagine how hot it must have been in the leather racing suits and full-face helmets.

Cool Kid Achievement Unlocked

Confession time: I didn’t ride my bike to work today.

Instead, I rode my new longboard.1I bet Jamison is jealous. ;-) Haha!2Is this where I also confess that I worked at a different campus today? Instead of my 4.5-mile commute, it was just less than a mile. :-D

Cool kid achievement unlocked!3Or maybe, it’s the Bob Goff achievement. That’s even better. :-)

Kudos to Daddies Board Shop

Jamison and I have been looking at making or buying longboards. Yesterday we headed to Daddies Board Shop. We found a couple of awesome boards and a really cool store.

Good job, Daddies! :-)
