Skateboarding Goth

If I don't shower soon, I'm gonna scream. It's so hot in this room right now, that I feel like I'm being simmered in a stew. Just got back from doing some thrashing -- it's my first time being on a skateboard in almost 15 years, and I think I pulled something. Thought I'd give it a try and see what everyone is going on about. My cousin is a snowboard instructor out in B.C., and we talked for a while at the family reunion last week. I thought it would be cewl to do a little boarding during the holidays, maybe going out west to visit. We had discussed the relative merits of skateboarding as a way of staying in shape during the off season, and I thought it might be good practice for me. I guess, since I always looked like a skater, it wasn't much of a stretch.
