You know you're a traceur when...
« on: February 07, 2007, 05:42:17 PM »
You know your a traceur when...

a picknic table will keep you preoccupied for hours on end

youve climbed up multiple streelights and caused people to stare out their car windows at you while they sit in traffic unaware of their bodies full potential

you have been on the roof of your school, a grocery store, and the local taco bell

you have have a ten year head start on all the other kids on the playground

you have come in to contact with non-dry paint and you are not a burgler or maybe you are

you have vaulted your kitchen counter and in doing so knocked over an entire turkey dinner

you know how to get on the roof of every bank in your town

you have amazing flow and its not just your hair

you wear or have worn a ninja mask to school

...you have a hard time walking around things.

...instead of hiding a key you just leave the attic window unlocked.

...you can jump higher than the track team.
keep it free and true

... the cops yell "stop jumpin' off sh*t, i ain't gonna be liable for yo' dumb ***"

... your classmates refer to you as the "ninja guy" or relate you to a monkey

...by the time you get to your job or class you're panting and possibly sweating(this excludes running because you're late lol)

I thought that was funny because whenever I go train I usually just climb to the top of a building and leave my keys and crap on the roof so I don't have to carry them in my pockets.

perfect... I was waiting for someone to say spiderman.... that's what I've been called for the past 2 years at my school - I'm the best at dodging in dodgeball (mostly because I use stuff like tic-tacs off the bleachers sides and stuff)

Dodgeball is my freaking favourite game to play! Or, well it was back in the day. It's been so many years.

Bobb, did you know that Charlotte at one time (might still have one, too) had a city dodgeball league? I called to join up but evidently there wasn't enough interest at the time or something. :P :P Neat, huh?

You Know You're A Traceur When:

*A ten minute walk back from class ends up taking two hours because you end up vaulting every rail and picnic table you see on the way .
*You've been to places no human foot has ever touched (previous to you of course)

*When your hands are callused like the pavement you bail upon.

*When your hands and forearms are torn to pieces from all the wall runs, bails and other assorted injuries.

*A tree is no longer a tree. It is nature's pull up bar.

You know you're a traceur when...

...You don't take the elevator... or the stairs

...You look at a skateboard and see a crutch

...You see a wall blocking your path and you think, "Sweet!"

...Tic-tacs are neither minty nor fresh

...You wish all the little kids would get off the playground because you want to play on the jungle gym
My promise for the month: three sets of handstand pushups (upto 5 reps now...)

I keep having these dreams that I'm falling.
The strange thing is, when I wake up,
They keep coming true.

*you're easily distracted by entirely normal objects.

*you often stop doing what you're doing and just stare at a wheelchair ramp for 3 minutes, drooling. 

*your tag skillz are teh pwnzorz.
