scooters

eerm…perhaps I have not been keeping up with recent trends but am I the only one who looks sideways at adults riding scooters? I’m not talking about motorbike scooters, I am referring to the ones you ride by using one leg to push yourself along.

On my way home yesterday, a guy on a scooter whizzed past me in a suit and tie no less.  I have nothing against scooters, infact my niece received one from Santa Claus. One slight point of difference though between my niece and the aforementioned guy is that she is six, he would have been in his thirties.

I am not sure whether to applaud him for his defiance against expected norms or shake my head in wonder. But whatever I do, he was happy riding his scooter without, it seemed, a care in the world.
