Parker signed up.
He's not a racer.
He's more into tricks.
So, I have to question "why?"
But I'm used to asking that question.
Parker: "Oh yeah. There are two categories. There are the professionals........."
Professional longboarders? "Professional" is reserved for doctors and lawyers....and maybe some athletes who actually get paid enough to support themselves...........not just buy a sticker for their helmet.
Parker: This is big! It's my first big race. It's serious."
Me: "Serious? More like ridiculous!"
Parker: "The professionals are racing for a cash prize."
Me: "What? Like $50?"
Parker: "I don't know.......the entrance fee is $2 and the winner gets half of all the money collected."
Me: "So $50. Oh and you aren't even a racer."
Parker: "I know, but I got this. I'm racing with the amateurs not the professionals."
Me: "Oh. Wow. I feel so much better."
Parker: "The top five get prizes. I'll come home with something."
Me: "Yeah.....a broken arm."
Parker: "No. This is legit. This is real. I mean,'Go big or go home.' And the ER can be considered a home."
At least I'm not the only the house on the block with idiots.
My nieces and nephews are also
My SIL: "Xan, you need to really think about this. You are leaving for college in a few weeks. Do you really want to go with a broken arm?"
Xan: "Think of how many people I could meet with a broken arm!"
Yep - idiot runs in the blood!
PS: You guys are GOOD guessers! Parker cashed in a whopping $185 worth of coins.
I came home with $615.89. Youhave to realize that I don't actually "collect" coins, go through pockets or empty my change purse into a jar. If I run across coins around the house, I just throw them into this container. When the container is overflowing, I take some out. Oh....our bank does not accept rolled coins. I don't know why. Whatever. Anyway, the closest guesser was Danelle over at Outnumbered with $527.38 or 83...whatever. Go over and congratulate her, give her a fist bump and a cyber cupcake!
