As I was entering the hardware store yesterday there were some 12ish-year-old boys outside loitering. They looked at me and I said “Hey what’s up” and a couple of them said “Hey” and then I went into the store.
One of them called out “Hey…” to me and I turned around. The kid asked “Did you used to skate?”
“Yeah,” I said.
“I thought so,” he said knowingly, “because of your style.”
I grinned and and they grinned back and I went into the store.
I guess he was right. I was wearing Vans classics, jeans, a t-shirt, checked pendleton overshirt, and a tiny stingy brim straw hat.

awww, that’s cute 🙂
Because whenever I see someone wearing a straw hat, I automatically think “skater.”
I believe it was the extreme stingybrimness of the hat that was the trigger. It would have been better with a cloth hat tho
Concurring that this = SO cute.
I know, right? It’s like that Mean Joe Green c0K3 commercial. Kinda Sorta.
THIS IS WHAT PUNK LOOKS LIKE! You are so awesome, c.
