Story about these pics: So, I walked into whole foods and to my left was the fruit. Right in front of me, these chips and salsa and some guacamole. Against my better judgement, i grabbed a chip and dipped into the salsa just as a woman strolled up to do the same. She smiled at me as I put the chip in my mouth and 180'd to grab some pineapple. Next to me was a girl who worked at whole foods stocking the shelf with more pineapple. A few seconds later the woman says loudly to the girl next to me, "excuse me" and we both turn around to see the woman is holding a chip in between her two fingers with a rather large amount of guacamole on it and a look on her face like she just dipped it in a baby's diaper. She says, "can you take this from me? someone just put their hands in the chips and you just never know." And she looks at me because that someone was obviously yours truly. So... If she smiled and watched me do it and proceeded to pick up a chip anyway and go so far as put guacamole on it, why'd she stop at the last moment? Instead of telling this lady to eat dirt it just kind of made me really embarrassed for not using the tongs to grab a chip. I also then became hyper aware of what I was wearing and maybe it didn't seems mart enough for her. Lesson learned. Use tongs. Dress better if you want good sampling at whole food with no objections. 😞
As many of you know my love for film and telling stories is as strong as my love for skateboarding. Over the past year I've been really lucky in that @target has allowed me to tell stories about their incredible athletes, Ryan Dungey, Kolohe Andino, Carissa Moore, Torin Yater Wallace, Roz Groenewoud and Paul Rodriguez. These people, who I really knew nothing about prior to working with them, have become people I deeply respect and admire in so many ways because they are all so determined and talented and just good people. Two of them might even come home from Sochi with gold medals this week. Yesterday, Target released the newest piece I did on a racecar driver named Kyle Larson. He's 21 years old and a NASCAR driver. His story particularly hit home because the support he had from his family and his obsession with cars started at birth. His love for what he does reminds me so much of a skateboarder and so many young skateboarders out there and I only hope that someday my son can look back at me and site me as being an inspiration for him to do what he absolutely loves and succed at it. Please take a look at what I made, the link is in my bio. I'd appreciate it.
It's always a great feeling when I see something like this, especially from a friend I respect and admire immensely. It has a been a good ride my friend. Thank you so much @salmasekela I'm proud of everything you've done and what you've achieved and I know we haven't seen nothin yet! May the next 20 be even better! ❤️
