I love this whole thing. Although that Millennial range insists on putting me in the group (born in 81), I’m riding the Generation X line so I claim it. Although I don’t listen to rock music (minus David Essex, whatever he’s considered; Aerosmith; and will loudly out-sing anyone when The Beatles “Come Together” comes on), I can relate to everything else, including trying not to bust my ass on a skateboard. I tried it two years ago, and it was the most awkward experience. My older brother, who used to pull me home from kindergarten on one and rode it regularly, told me all of his skateboard teaching lessons were clearly ignored. Sorry, bruh, but I tried.
