Simon Gets A New Skateboard

August 3, 2004

So, I'm back in the city after two weeks at camp. It was way cooler than I thought it would be, but I'm also pretty stoked to be back at home. Two weeks of no skateboarding, no TV and no video games was a bit much. I told my brother, Miguel, about the two kids who were smoking. He said it was cool that I didn't smoke, but said I should tell mom about the other kids. He figured she'd find out about the other kids somehow and I'd get brownie points if I told her first.

My brother usually doesn't have many bright ideas but I decided to take his advice on this one and talk to mom. I thought she'd be ticked that I was hangin' out with kids who were smoking - but Miguel was right (I guess he's not as much of a moron as I thought he was.) When I told Mom about the other kids at camp smoking, she was super impressed that I decided not to have a cigarette and that I came forward and told her.

Just how impressed was she? She bought me a brand new Andy Mac skateboard!. That's totally wicked. I got a new skateboard just for NOT smoking. How easy was that? I bet if I told her I said, "No" to drugs, she'd buy me a dirtbike!

I was going to message Sindy and tell her but she's in major trouble right now from her parents for getting her belly button pierced - and I thought she'd be even more upset if I told her how well things are going for me right now.

Anyway, I'm off to jump some curbs and and slide some rails - then I'm off to the Warped Tour next week!

Later,

Simon
