I used to type that to Danny in high school. “L8er Sk8er.”
Because I was cool.
But there’s a new cool kid in town and she goes by the name of Alice Maureen. And boy howdy is this kid cool.
She hasn’t always been a skater. She was afraid for a long time and just this year it seemed to become her favorite thing and I must say, she’s a natural.
She isn’t afraid to try any of the bigger things and she is learning more and more with each trip to the park. She falls but gets right back up. She gets scrapes and bruises but has decided that’s just part of the skate life.
This girl needs some sponsors.
I predict that by the end of the summer, she’ll be dropping in off coping and will get her ollie perfected. I think she’s gonna be such a badass skater girl that boys will be asking for her autograph before she can drive.
