con micoso // 2002-08-21
picosa and i went longboarding last night in the cost-co parking lot south of downtown. it may help to know that i am 29 and this was the first time i stepped on any sort of skateboard in my life.
at first it felt awkward, like running with your hands in your pockets, but i think i got used to it kind of quickly. it's amazing, though, that a red plastic solo cup in your path can cause complete panic (barely masked by a reservoir of cool?).
by complete panic i mean a little bit of pee came out.
at home later, i tried to remember the last time i coaxed my body into learning a new skill.
