Skateboarding Grandma

A bulky black wrist brace adorns each arm and an elbow strap hugs my sore right elbow. Rising out of the car is difficult until I get my legs under me, and I move about a bit stiffly at first. My knees are unsteady from a sports injury, and my wrists and elbow hurt from typing too much.

But believe it or not, after my 4-year-old granddaughter Alyssa looked me over briefly the other day, she asked,

"Grandma, where's your skateboard?"
