That’s why we do ’em.

7 Jan
When I stumbled upon this poster I was overcome by a mysterious urge to flip my work laptop shut, cue some Blink-182 on my iPod, throw my satchel over one shoulder and run all the way home. I’d grab some chocolate Primo from the supermarket and take Mr. Lucky, my trusty BMX, down to the Freeman’s Bay skate park. I might scab a cigarette off one of the older guys and he’d make me take a gulp of his vodka, which would be disgusting but I’d quickly have another go so they didn’t think I was a kid or anything. We’d save all our best tricks for when girls walked past and I’d just hang with these guys until it got a little too dark and weird old men that smelled like paint arrived at the park looking for a place to sleep. When I got home I’d be in heaps of trouble for missing dinner, and Mr. Lucky and I would have a couple of nasty grazes each, but it’d have been rad and totally worth it.
Oh what a day that would be. Alas, Outlook informs me I have meetings all afternoon. When did I go and get all grown up?

    I didn’t even know you had a BLOG. But it’s ULTRA v.2.0 awesome. As is this poster.

    I love you.
