Thought you had a bad weekend? Check this out. Remember my youngest brother, Tyler, from a few posts ago? Well he is quite the outdoorsman, at least he thinks he is. He was putzing around on his moped at our cottage located about an hour and fifteen minutes north from Green Bay. Be it a snowmobile, ATV or - as was the case this weekend - moped, Tyler loves being a show-off. As he zoomed up and down the shoddy back roads he came across his archnemesis, the elderly. In an act of defiance that he was sure would piss them off he gunned it. His plan: pop a wheelie and sustain it for about "a mile" all the while passing back and forth in front of the couple who would probably suffer a combination of a heart attack, stroke and a few aneurysms at how cool Tyler's wheelie was. Unfortunately, the moped is one step up from being a powerwheels toy, so as Tyler executed his wheelie the bike couldn't hold him up sending him skipping across the gravel road sans motor bike. Notice the Nelly-esque band-aid right under his eye. Very 1998. Gathering his wits about him, Tyler pulled himself up, dusted the pebbles and grime from his clothes and waved with a casual smirk at the scowling onlookers before straddling the moped and sputtering away.

At least he's in decent shape. I think I've injured myself worst in the past week moving and not trying to be cool or traumatize the elderly. He has a better story though.

Ah, the painful lessons of youth that create those memories we bring up later in life as we shake our heads and say out loud, "Who did I think I was?"
