Yesterday when I was about to go help two friends pack their apartment so they can move to my house on Saturday, I was playing in the garage when I noticed my Rip-Stick. The back wheel is broken, and I need to get it fixed, I showed one of my friends, and then I mentioned that I probably shouldn’t use it till the wheel is fixed, lest I get hurt. Of course, disregarding what I just said, I put it on the ground and went to ride it. The Garage is probably not the best place to use it since the floor is kinda slippery, let alone with a broken wheel. But regardless of all common sense, I decide to try it anyway. What’s the worst that could happen anyway?
I start riding it, and about three seconds later I find myself falling to the floor. SMACK! my knee hits the ground really hard, and the pain shoots up through my arm. Quite a painful experience. After spending a minute on the floor in pain, I try to stand up and head to the car so I can drive over to the apartment. I couldn’t walk on it very well, was glad that I only need my Right leg to drive, and not my left…
Was sorta a funny happening, one of my friends was laughing so hard she started crying. With my broken pride, and throbbing knee, I drive over to the apartment and enjoy laughing at my lack of common sense. It really was quite hilarious, now that I look back on it.
I guess the point of this post is to share with you that before riding your Rip-stick, make sure the wheels are intact and you’re not in the garage. 🙂 But I’m sure you can use your imagination and learn something from this as well. 🙂
