Scene for Sore Eyes

Where: On location in the kitchen of our home.
When: December 4, 2005
The scene: Take one middle aged father, who introduces the generation gap to his eleven-year-old son.
After returning home from filming as a background extra in the movie Kank, my son’s curiosity got the best of him.
“What did you play in the movie?” inquired Jimmy.
“Well, we filmed at a train station." I said. "Oh, since you're an avid skateboarder, you’re going to love this coincidence. I played an actual skateboarder for a scene.”
“That is the most ridiculous thing that I have ever heard.” snapped Jimmy. “You’re a 43 year old man. You don’t even know how to skateboard. I bet you don’t know what a half pipe is. You probably made a fool of yourself. And I don’t know what those movie producers were thinking. Safety is first. They should have hired stunt men to skateboard around trains.”
I allayed, “That’s why they call it acting, son.”
The kid steals every scene.

don't know for sure but a half pipe has got to be better than no pipe at all.
