So my buddy Mike sends me this video and says “this depresses the shit out of me.” See, Mike is a first time snowboarder and to put it mildly, decided after his first time out that a helmet would be a great investment. I laughed, thought the video was cute as hell, but as I got up to get my 4th cup of coffee it hit me:
First, this video isn’t cute, it’s creepy. What kind of parent sends their 1 year old child hurling down a mountain with her feet strapped to a wooden plank?
Second, while yes this girl might be a better snowboarder than mike, there is plenty of stuff he can do that she cant:
- Not poop yourself
- Drink a beer
- Not get easily distracted by bright lights
- Watch a PG-13 movie
You’re move, toddler. Come talk to me when you’re 24, blogging, and living in a 3rd floor walk-up, until then I’m not impressed.
