My Friends Who Make Life Awesome

The husband must be trying to recapture the glory days of his wasted youth or something. Recently he’s become fascinated by BMX videos, but they leave me feeling conflicted. I loved this sort of thing when I was a teenager (watching more skate videos than BMX) but now as I watch, I’m simultaenously thinking “wow, that’s really cool” and “oh god, their poor mothers”, especially when the lads ride helmet-less. But I don’t get that gratuitous handlebar wiggling. While I understand it adds a certain degree of difficulty, I think it looks kinda dorky. The female skaters are cooler anyhow.
