skate and/or destroy

As I was entering the hardware store yesterday there were some 12ish-year-old boys outside loitering. They looked at me and I said "Hey what's up" and a couple of them said "Hey" and then I went into the store.

One of them called out "Hey..." to me and I turned around. The kid asked "Did you used to skate?"

"Yeah," I said.

"I thought so," he said knowingly, "because of your style."

I grinned and and they grinned back and I went into the store.

I guess he was right. I was wearing Vans classics, jeans, a t-shirt, checked pendleton overshirt, and a tiny stingy brim straw hat.
