The other day I was buying some Christmas gifts in a major toy store. It was about eight at night, as I generally prefer to avoid the hoards.

I saw a skateboard on the shelf and simply had to buy it. Like the guy in the picture, I may be old enough to know better, but I simply don’t care. Pic credit: Leigh Nelson.
