How Come I Didn't Get One?


A Hello Kitty skateboard has to be one of the coolest presents for six and eight year old girls to unwrap on Christmas. I mean, if I got a Hello Kitty skateboard I know I’d be pretty stoked. ย 
And I’m thinking my 75 year old uncle really wanted one too because he took the skateboards, and went for a little belly ride (70+ year old men require two skateboards. I’m happy to report I only needed one)…
That’s how he rolls

  1. When I was a kid, my friend's brother had a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles skateboard. We used it in much the same way as your uncle. Yup, we were too cool.

  12. LOL! No, really. I actually laughed out loud, and Future Husband was like, “What's so funny?” By the time I was done explaining it, he was just like, “Oh. Cool.” I hope I'm that spry and fun at 75!

  13. I admit, I love Hello Kitty. And I love having a girl, i.e. I can buy A LOT of this stuff without having to look completely ridiculous myself. H&M does a sweet Hello Kitty girl's collection for little money. PS: Your uncle is awesome. ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Oh man, my inner punk is glowing at the idea of skateboarding around France. It also internally hurts because I'd know I'd break myself majorly on the mountain. Maybe I'll just stick to snowboarding for now (unless you can hook me up with one of those boards!)…

  19. The better question is, why didn't I get one…My family gave me umbrellas (read that as: you're moving to London, we heard it rains there). Where's my damn Hello Kitty skateboard. Hmph.

  21. Dang my new phone, none of my comments seem to go through when I use that to do it.so re-do:”The Irish can have fun with anything if there's enough alcohol involved!” (Said from one Irish gal to another.)Cheers! How was the trip back home to the land of no Starbucks? Sad, so sad. But I'm guessing Fifty's happy!
