Little Rough Riders....

video

...ROLL...


Snitches want to try, snitches want to lie...haha...ha....thats how these rough riders roll





Malltrain....

You have heard of Soul Train, you have mourned the loss of Don Cornelius, maybe, I understand for some in my family this will take awhile longer than others....you have been outed my hippie disco mom... I give you Mall train - cheesy - yes a bit - but timely . your welcome. 

IN a time when the mall gets lamer for all young children...  Even though they try to spruce it up with the likes of the trampolines and free food court samples - though i think that is just for cheap teenagers and myself - the mall produces a winner.  And by winner I mean something that will make the kids scream train without thinking of the band that wooed me with meet virginia, and a product that will make a grown man wear...wait for it...



this...as he punches the tickets that resemble the single raffle. roll you get at the dollar tree.


Mall Train...My Son's very first Malltrain...

And yes he said all aboard before this....




gifted conductor/driver I know...


Again...Again...and then there it was ...promises of riding next time...win.  At least for my boy, and this guy/conductor.

Who by the way will be living in Hawaii for the next 6 months with this company, while being payed and put up in an apartment on the beach (i might have made up the on the beach part but it definitely adds to your intrigue - don't lie) - whoever said that dressing up like a train conductor and sitting in the middle of the mall with a funny hat while being ridiculed by every teenager and senile angry old man that walks by doesn't pay off has never met this guy. 

And what post would be complete about Malltrain if I forgot to mention that Every 8th ride is free.  And please keep your hands and feet inside the car at all times and please remain seated while the train is in motion.  Good Day.
