Longboarding Fail #2

Today I longboarded to my West Campus classes again. This time, I made it quite smoothly ALL the way to the parking lot!

Unfortunately, I made it quite smoothly just to the parking lot.

Not long past the entrance to the lot, I ran over some sort of crack/bump/obstacle/thing that I wasn’t prepared for and slipped off my board. No, I did not fall and die, and neither were there that many people around.

I was fine, and simply landed on my two feet. But my board? She decided to run off and play hide-and-go-seek under the rows of parked cars.

I think I searched for, mmmm, about 10 minutes until I finally found her concealed behind a compact car’s front wheel.

Thankfully, I wasn’t late to class, but I didn’t have any time to wash off my black knees either.

And that is my Fail of the Day.


Fail of the Day: Mini Cooper vs. Police car

Yesterday my dad was on a bike ride up on a mountain road and two motorhomes pulling boats turned onto the road he and his group were riding up. At a place where the road was turning, this little Mini Cooper decided it wanted to pass Mr. and Mrs. Big Boat, so he started screaming on past regardless of what was a very blind turn.

As this was taking place, the cyclists saw something that the Mini Cooper didn’t: a car coming down the road in the opposite direction. Weather forecast for today: thunder, lightning, and DEATH with sporadic showers of glass and metal. Thank you and I hope you wore a helmet today.

Fortunately, the Mini Cooper somehow managed a narrow escape from the oncoming car…

…Too bad it happened to be a police car.

Needless to say, it didn’t take long for the officer to whip a U-turn and take Mr. Hotshot Mini Cooper down.

Excuse me, but we have received an update on the weather forecast: sunny with 100% chance of a loser failing and facing immediate justice. Thank you and I hope you do not fail today.
