I can’t assume he skated all the way to the beach! And back! If I’d have known he was going to do that I would have taken in our air conditioned car
My teenage child wanted me to take him out to the beach. I think there was some sort of skater convention going on or something. Well I couldn’t take him. I had things going on this week, besides, I didn’t want to hang out with skaters all afternoon long. So I said “no”. He wasn’t blissful however I thought he had given up on the plan when I saw him go outside with his skateboard a half second later. He was gone all afternoon. I didn’t see him until lunch time. When he showed up he was hot, hot, plus tire. He drank half a gallon of water plus then plopped his sizzling self on the sofa in front of the A/C vent. I was about to scold him however I could see how sleepy he was. He then told me that he has skated all the way to the beach. It is over 14 miles 1 way to the beach! He said that going there was not too bad. It was still early plus it wasn’t easily hot. However, coming back was terrible. He said he stopped at at least several air conditioned fast food locations along the way to cool down plus get something to drink. He was easily blissful to be beach loft in front of the A/C. He swore he wasn’t going to ever leave this A/C vent again. I wish I could assume that. I can’t assume he skated all the way to the beach! And back! If I’d have known he was going to do that I would have taken in our air conditioned car. I would have been a lot safer.
