There are several what I call Death Hills near me.
These are a real pain in the ass to walk up.
The other day I was going down one of them and in the opposite direction I saw a teen on a damn hoverboard.
He wasn’t moving at what anyone would say was speedy. It was basically a deliberate walking speed. But it was still faster than any damned walking speed that I could do up the Death Hill!
I was surprised to see a Hoverboard. Since the battery scandal, they’ve been just about extinct around here after being all over the place. But I was more surprised to see the damn thing make it up that Death Hill.
