The Brave Little Skateboard

Okay, This is not a story from a skateboard’s perspective, I just can’t help but think of “The Brave Little Toaster” when writing this silly little story :P

Today when I went across the street to get the mail I noticed someone had thrown this mini skateboard away. Well. I picked it up and considered bringing it home but decided against it. Well tonight I was telling Rachel about it and really wanted to get it tomorrow if it was still there. Well, Rachel proceeds to inform me that tomorrow is trash day and my precious mini skateboard would be lost forever! :cue dramatic music: It was at that moment I decided I wasn’t going to let this skateboard slip through my fingers, I promptly went to my mom asking her to let me get it. Well my wonderful mother stood in the driveway and watched as I pranced across the street with a flashlight and dug around in a trash can (it was only papers. otherwise I would have brought gloves) and happily pulled out the skateboard. After jumping up and down a few times to get rid of some of my energy/sughar high I am now sitting on the couch quite content knowing that I have this precious little skateboard.. I have no clue what I’m going to do with it…. Yet.. But that will come soon!…. Hopefully :P

(I couldn’t find a ruler so I had to settle for a wooden spoon to give you an idea of its size)

It doesn’t look like much I know, But I love it! and I found it in the trash, what can you expect?

    Oh Caro, I love this! And yes, it DOES remind me of The Brave Little Toaster. :’) He may have been like that INFP blanket that was missing his owner so badly… That movie gets to me. :P Anyway, you need to ride it! :D
