Default Hoping your age


Though I suppose it's actually the reverse of golf, but the old guys
seem to be proud when they can shoot their age or better in golf.

Well yesterday I was able to hop 36 times and rode out of it. I
stopped because I was getting tired, not because I was falling over. I
think at that point I get to say I know how to hop eh?

Now I just have to work on the control a little more, and also hoping
with the left foot forward rather than the right.

My son hates me haha. He was working on his hoping and was thinking he
was better than me.. be he broke his wrist riding his skateboard, so
now he's off wheels for a while.

And yeah, I know hoping is stupid easy for many of you....

Hoping is easier than hopping. More difficult is to eat your age in
pieces of sushi. The last time I did that I was 51.

Damn now that is impressive, the most I have done is about 25, although
they were about an inch and a half around and an inch thick, which I
find to be large compared to many restaurants.

DOH!!!


We're going for sushi tonight, though I don't think I'm going to be
going for any records there.. I'm HOPING to lose a little wieght so
that HOPPING will be easier

I swear that unicycling is one of the most under-rated forms of
excercise. I've been racing BMX for 5 years with my kids. In a couple
months of regular unicycling, my legs are in better shape than ever and
I've lost about 15 pounds.

Maybe you can become the Jared Fogle of both unicycling and sushi.
Cool. Do you like uni? As a unicyclist you practically have to.

My son just informed me that I totally suck.

He had a friend count and he hopped 118 times. He's TEN.

So I guess I have to get to 360+ to be even huh?
