*music* J: Ah, you’re in. Hello!
C: Hey! *kiss* That was fun!
J: It was! C: Apart from my epic falls.
J: *laughing* *music* [crash] J: But we’ve been having fun learning that we are both good on four wheels C: Yeah!
J: Yeah! C: I’m having a bit of a hair issue though
J: Yeah Actually no. It’s working for me. You’ve just got to stick your face into the wind and you’re good. C: Okay
J: There we go C: There we go
J: Beautiful! But you know, I really love my wheelchair. That’s what I’ve learned today. I’d forgotten how much I love my wheelchair C: Yeah, you’re really good on it. Better than I am on my, like, board. But then you did go around on your wheelchair for how many years? Maybe like three overall?
C: Yeah. I’ve been on my skateboard when I was like 13 years old for about six months And mainly I just sat on it and went down my driveway, which was on a slight hill, on my bum. So I think I did quite well today.
J: You did well. C: I’m fighting the elements and the wind.
J: Learning. She’s learning. Yeah, but it seems strange because people would think that being in a wheelchair would be really awful and wouldn’t be fun But actually it’s amazing because I feel so much freer and more independent in my wheelchair Because I can just go wherever I like.
C: Yeah. J: Move quickly at the pace of a human
C: Yeah I know J: And not just “Jessica speed” which is what I normally move at C: Apart from when people decide it’s their business to come over and tell you how to cure yourself [music stops] *angry hissing* *music* J: So, I just got stopped by a lady who asked me if my energy was blocked to my legs If my energy chakra was perhaps out of whack And maybe if I thought deeply about the energy in my legs they would be better. Oh my god.
C: Whateverrrr *angry hissing* J: That’s so unfortunately common. It’s so common. But I ju- thank you. But I just had a lovely day. C: Yeah! So did I and it’s really nice It was forecast to be a bit better than it is today, but it’s still sunny I mean it’s like….. nearly….it’s like nearly November so… J: My parents currently being battered by a storm called Brian!
C: Storm Brian! Yeah, we don’t have cool names like they do in the USA, it’s just like…..Brian. J: So we’re doing well. We’re doing well. Brian’s not got us. C: Aww it’s really really pretty scenery My hair is doing some awful- I’m getting some weird like center parting here now I’m sure J: Oh dear…. C: I can’t do the glamorous thing that Jessica does Anyway, it’s been fun J: Yeah
C: We’ll try and make some more like….. you know, California-esque…. skateboarding……. wheelchairing, like, tricks and slo-mo….. I’ll probably improve-
J: Yeah maybe not in England. C: Yeah we might have to improve our four wheel driving first. J: We’ll work on it. Well do that cool thing like the girl who dances on the longboard. C: Oh she’s awesome! Yeah! J: Her.
C: Check her out. J: That one.
C: We’ll put the link below of who it is I can’t remember right now, but she’s really cool. I don’t normally wear these gloves either although I’m kind of rocking them, I think. J: I think you look awesome!
C: They’re actually Jessica’s wheelchair gloves But I thought I better put them on just for my many epic falls to, like- J: And? What did they do? They saved you. C: Yeah! My hands are not grazed. I have a slightly twisted ankle but oh well. Now we can be like buddies.
J: Awww C: I can go round on your crutches.
J: Hop-along buddies. C: Yeah. Hobble-along buddies. Alright well, it’s been fun.
J: Hope you’ve enjoyed the video. *music* [inaudible] J: Okay. Let’s skate.
