Look, we rule. And by default, the rest of the planet has to be lame. And if they want to change their lameness, we let them know it can be changed here. If they want to make it anywhere, we serve notice that they have to make it here first. If they want what we got in our awesome, amazing, little place of perfection, then we’ll give it to them, but they have to come and get it.

It’s too hot in the summer, too cold in the winter, or too transitional in the spring and fall. The jocks and the hicks and the old people and the college kids and the posers are ruining everything. All their shops are in malls. All their friends are jerks. And take it from me, their parents just don’t understand.

So every day it’s like, wake up, don’t check the weather, skate one of the new parks that the acid freaks got funded through some secret federal grant, then hit a few perfect spots on the way to eat and drink for free until I’m good and comfortable.

The mayor’s kid is sponsored by some new, arty Belgian board company, all the shops here are owned and operated by skaters, and they’re freestanding, OG, mom-and-pops that sponsor like fifty of the best pros, so dudes are always cruising through to sign posters, premiere videos, drink Stella in the backs of fifteen-passenger vans, and build respectable relationships with the thousands of eligible single women who populate our fair city.

The high school I dropped out of is like second or third globally when it comes to placing their graduates in meaningful and lucrative management jobs. They just retired the number I wore in all three years of intramural basketball. The ceremony was glorious. God bless ’em … those folksy folk in my amazing town.

I mean, if we’re just making things up now, part of me thinks there might be a group of skaters who’ll give up skating all together, but then creep away to live a life of obscurity in someplace like Syria or Israel where they’ll negotiate a Nobel Prize-winning peace deal … sneaking in sessions when no one is looking.

Most skaters—the ones who aren’t skating because someone is begging them to, or paying them to, or forcing them to—also know that if we were able and someone asked nicely, we might actually give up our no-comply for an end to suicide bombs, or all our flatground tricks for an easily brokered ceasefire somewhere east of Eden.
