WHITE MAN CAN JUMP

The best part of having a little little brother, is the excuse you have to do the things you used to love when you were a child.

Some may say that’s part of the reason I so love the group I work for too…

So during a quick trip home I stole some family time. And don’t ask me how, but we stumbled upon a conversation about if two people could ride on one bike at a time.

So obviously, we got the bike out. And our helmets. And decided to try.

I needed one last picture together before one of us smashed our face in. Permanent style.

And here’s what we discovered.

These two people could NOT ride one bike together. Meh. Props for trying. It was worth every laugh.

On the way back inside (still laughing), Ben causally mentions he can probably jump over me.

Yeah sure Ben. That’s cute. I mean, I know you’ve got long legs, but I’m 5′ 9″. That’s just not possible.

And the next second I felt hands on my shoulder and then BAM Ben was on the ground in front of me.

You’re kidding me right?

Holy. Crap.

So we did it again so that I could have picture proof.

The kid is just plain cool.

I’m not making this up. This white kid can jump.

It made me smile… so obviously, I wanted to share with you.

Also, I somehow now have a desire to attempt to jump over things. I haven’t really started anything yet, you know, because I recognize that I’m a klutz…  But be warned, one of these future posts might be the one titled “No Front Teeth.”

Smile.

    You didn’t have the right kind of bike. You need a Beach Cruiser bike. One person sits on the handle bars while the other pedals. Used to do this at college all the time.
