1) Tony Hawk is paralyzed from the neck down, but he seems as happy and together as ever and is still real involved in the skate scene, opening skate parks and what not. I'm looking at him thinking, damn, he lost the thing that his whole life has centered around.
2) I'm at Burning Man which is like a water park but the tickets are still over $200. I buy my ticket and then a big wave knocks me on my ass. I look and the wave came from a little pool, barely bigger than a jacuzzi after my dad cannon balled into it. Dad is laughing affectionately while sitting in the pool.
