Sk8tr boys

There’s a small swimming pool at the end of the building that houses Reid’s school. The pool has a ramp going into it that is just right for skateboarders to do tricks on (when the pool is empty, of course). There were a few hoodlums, erh, I mean upstanding young men like Shea on skateboards doing tricks when I picked Reid up from school recently. She was drawn over to them like a moth to a flame. I’m sure it would have been the same if there’d be teen girls putting on a display but I was left wondering: if those that hang around the hockey arena are rink rats and those that hang around for the hockey players are puck bunnies, what do your skateboarders’ groupies?
