Glad You Asked: Weekend To-Dos



Dear GYA, Yes, it is incredibly epic that I did the splits between two moving trucks. But, you should know that this isn't that big of a deal; I'm always doing the splits (also known as Van Damming). In fact, this morning, I Van Dammed on two longboards to a Kohls, and now I'm writing this from my phone while Van Damming up an escalator. Anything happening this weekend that I can Van Damme? Jean-Claude Van Damme---
