I've been practicing kickflips for months now, but until today, all I've had to show for it is a few cases of road rash and a twisted ankle. But today, I finally landed one for the first time. It was sick. I popped the board up, did a perfect flip with my foot and stomped it. This was better than getting to second base. I haven't actually gotten to second base yet, but once Kara gets over her cold, I hope to start getting some serious action. I brought her homework and made her a get-well CD last week, so there better be a payoff! My brother, Miguel, says Kara's older sister kisses with tongue, so I'm definitely dating the right family.
The only bummer about my first kickflip was that no else one saw it. I was skating with Ben at the mall parking lot but he was too busy trying to pop a zit on the side of his cheek, so he missed it. So, Ben's face was a bleeding mess and I had no witnesses to my kicklip. Not very cool. If I'd only managed to tape my kickflip, I'd be one step closer to getting sponsored - then I wouldn't have to beg my 'rents for cash, I definitely wouldn't have to worry about homework and I'd be hangin' out with Tony Hawk, instead of my zit-popping friend, Ben.
Anyway, my moment of skateboarding glory didn't last long. Some fat, slobby security guard, named Lyle, informed us that skateboarding is strictly prohibited on mall property and threatened to call the police. What a loser - I bet he'll never kiss a girl with tongue! So, Ben and I booked it home and played Tony Hawk's Underground all afternoon. Today was a nice break from all the crap I've had to deal with from parents, teachers and annoying guidance counselors. My grades may stink and my parents may be annoying - but I can land a kickflip.
