Last week during his sermon, our pastor reminded everyone that his son’s first birthday was quickly approaching1As is his. and he wondered what the perfect present would be. So I showed him this video of a dad teaching his toddler how to skateboard.2And suggested that he pair the gift of a skateboard with some protective gear, including a helmet. When he said he didn’t know how, I reminded him that less than a year ago, neither did I.
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
