Potty training or skateboarding?

I never mastered skateboarding

When I was a young teenager, skateboards were what you made with a piece of wood and the two halves of a roller skate.

They were harder to control but we got the hang of it - except for no brakes! Once I was flying down a seldom used, up-and-down hilly road when a car appeared and approached behind me, so I shifted over to the left - opposite direction for cars - lane.  Suddenly, a car appeared approaching me, rising above a bump in the road. With no brakes, I was able to steer toward the curb, hoping that when I ran into it I could leap into the grass beyond.  I didn't quite clear the cement curb.

I had an almost solid scab down half my back for the next few weeks.

So I guess I never really mastered skateboarding, either!
