Disaster strikes!

Postby WoodyAJ » Mon Oct 25, 2010 11:53 am

:( Picture the scene 07:30 Sunday morning;
There's damp on the ground here and there (thinks :idea: The skatepark may have missed that last shower). The car has got a covering of ice (thinks :idea: The skate park is on a hill and may not have ice). The paint job the council did may not be as bad as everyone thinks.

Arms full of kit and the flask slips out of my grasp! Noooooooo, bang..... tinkle tinkle tinkle :cry:

It's no good it's a gonner

The flask has accompanied me throughout my reintroducion to skateboardng, sniff.... sniff.

Upside was; the bowls were dry and ice free........ Aaaaaaace.
Skating is a source man, change your life........... Swear to god :mrgreen:

That's the problem with those old school flasks.

Try one of the new school unbreakable models.

Run it through a sieve and you'll be fine.

I know how loosing something so familar might make you skate worse, would me! maybe you can find another that looks similar so you can forget the heartbreak. So did you break anything else on your outing? That'll teach you not to stick to better weather!

Didn't you used to be able to get new inners for those thermos things???

Sorry to hear about loss, I'll raise my cup the memory of your flask.
If I don't like him I'm hardly likely to like you.

Used to be able would be the correct terminology !
There's a possibility that that very inner might have been made by me :shock:
I spent 13 years in the stinking shithole :evil: :evil:
Production was moved to China in 2000.
I saw an example of what they were making >> total shit !!
The original inners were made of borasilicate glass.
Got to be honest though , being made redundant from there was a bonus ,
I got me a better job :D

Green flasks are tougher.
It only hurts until they administer the morphine.

Brilliant - only on this site could I get such entertaining responses to a such a random thread as the loss of a flask. :wink:

Ben g; I'll look out for a green one, maybe if I'm lucky it will be the same colour as my cubics brother.
Southcoastshredder/Greywolf; Not sure about getting a new inner for it now! Don't get me on the can't find anything made outside China and Chinese quality issue.
Richgee; Didn't break anything else but am nursing bruised ribs from a failed axle stall attempt-upside dowm in a mini halfpipe groaning!!
Snakebite; I have some superglue around somewhere and it is wet outside. :?
Alec; Maybe some new skool wheels to complement a new skool flask. 8)

Marvellous fun on a wet Sunday. :D Cheers gents.
