Local Kid Makes Good

Well, not yet, but I'm on my way. My New Year's resolution was to learn how to ride a unicycle, and now stage one of the process is complete. I've made the purchase:


Now, it's just a matter of learning how to ride the thing.

Short video clips of me falling on my face will be forthcoming.

I'm beginning to see why Don Quixote is one of your favorite books. Be sure to wear a helmet.

Good observation! I'll definitely be needing a helmet. Maybe a lance too?

Lodo Grdzak said...

You look determined.

Matt DiGangi said...

I hope you get good enough to take it off some jumps. Your kids must be thrilled.

Spencer Troxell said...

Lodo: Oh, I am. This is happening.

Matt: I'll be satisfied if I don't end up getting my face scraped off. The kids are surprisingly ambivalent to the whole thing. I think they're pretty accustomed to my out-of-left-field hobbies at this point.

Are we looking at a future in the circus?

Spencer Troxell said...

Very possibly. I'm graduating in the Spring with a bachelor's in psychology. What else is available to me?

Molly Gaudry said...

Oh man, good luck with the uni! And did you know I'm a former UC student? Did some BA (English) and MA (Fiction) there, yeppers.

Spencer Troxell said...

I didn't know that. Indeed.

Molly Gaudry said...

Indeed, indeed.
