after being rained out yesterday, teak and i skated downtown tonight. we hit up a bunch of spots, had a lot of fun, until teak, when trying to manual in a tight space between a wall and a railing, banged his knees across the railing bars. you know when you were a kid and you'd rap a stick along a picket fence? like that. and, as if angering the gods with his insolence, the skies opened up once again, ending the night with more rain.
