Breaking the rules

death wish skateboards

“So which one did you decide on?”

“The redhead.”

“Why that one? It’s hideous.”

“I liked it, I think it made the boldest statement.”

“I still don’t understand why someone your age needs a skateboard.”

“It’s not merely a skateboard, it’s part of my New Year’s resolution.”

“What’s that? To break every bone in your calcified body?”

“No, to break every behavior rule society demands for someone my age, to live my life how I want to, regardless of what anyone thinks.”

“That’s a nice speech. Just make sure you have a helmet and that your life insurance is current.”

  1. we went the motorcycle route . . . now it’s an exercise bike. A skateboard would kill us. 🙂 But fun to try . . . once . . . 🙂

  4. This is great! It’s different because you expect they are talking about a woman. I love the twist.

  11. ah, well whatever takes you somewhere else right?
    I like how he called it the “redhead”, it brings to mind a woman, but then it isn’t…

    guess she should be glad that his temptations are inanimate? (HA)

    not EVERYTHING FUN..is bad for you.
