Why yes, TJ, they can and indeed do. The other day I was in my locker and saw TJ’s Alien Workshop stickers and I said, “Those are cool Alien Workshop stickers”
TJ said, “How do you know what Alien Workshop is?”
“Because I just so happen to have a skateboard and I know most of the brands,” I said.
“Oh yeah? What kind of skateboard?”
“An Enjoi board with Plan B wheels and Venture trucks.” (P.S. click on Enjoi to get their website)
He looks at me in stunned silence, then goes of shouting to his friends something along the lines of, “HOLY COW*! DID YOU KNOW THIS GIRL CAN SKATEBOARD?! She has an Enjoi board and everything!”
I laughed then because A) he doesn’t know one of my goals for life is to conquer all things with wheels or boards, B) skateboarding isn’t just for the under achievers, and C) Girls can skateboard too. Everyone** wants me to bring my board to school but I don’t think I’m going to ride a mile to school on my skateboard just for the sake of people looking at it. And, I’m not very good at the moment. I’d rather work out all the glitches, be able to do a few tricks, then show off my talents. (Not that I’m like that with everything) I want to look good while riding. Suave, smooth, amazing. Not choppy or break-your-arm-when-you-fall-off bad. I can’t even do an ollie, one of the simplest trick in the books. Anyway, that’s all for now. I just thought it was funny.
*Cow could be substituted for a profanity
