…that some things are way more fun than you’ll ever know if don’t at least give them a try.

Take Segways, for instance. I’d always sort of snickered at them, and at people who get around on them when they could easily just walk.

But then I got the idea that it might be amusing to treat my son to a Segway tour of downtown Austin for his birthday.

And then the time I made our reservations for turned out to be as beautiful a February afternoon as you could hope for.

And then actually riding those suckers turned out to be an absolute blast.

I can only assume that a few of the folks we passed were snickering at us. But they just had no idea.
