Not Everyone Is Sporty

Ruby: Ginger, why do you continue to do this repeatedly?

Ginger: Because one of these times, it will work.

Ruby: Doubt it.

Ginger: One day, it will work.

Ruby: No, Ginger, it won’t.

Ginger: Hope springs eternal.

Ruby: Gravity works.

Ginger: If at first, you don’t succeed – try, try again.

Ruby: The ground is not impressed.

Ginger: Rollerblades were designed to be worn!

Ruby: Not by YOU!

Ginger: Ow.

Ruby: I’m not enabling you anymore. If you want medical assistance, you’ll have to sign a document stating you will never again try rollerblading again.

Ginger: But, Ruby…

Ruby: No.

Ginger: They’re supposed to be fun.

Ruby: You’re not designed to be on wheels. You fall every time you try something like this – skateboard, roller skates, rollerblades…

Ginger: I know, I know. But the people in the movies and the TV shows make it look so easy!

Ruby: They’re trained professionals. It’s their job to make it look easy.

Ginger: Can I try surfing?

Ruby: You’re joking, right?

Ginger: You’re saying a few scraped knees and elbows on land is fine, but drowning at sea is not?

Ruby: We’ll go with that. Also, I’m not sure how, but you would find a way to injure yourself on a fish’s dorsal fin.

Ginger: You’d put a band-aid on it, though, right?

Ruby: You’re not surfing, Ginger.

Ginger: …is your first aid kit still under the sink?

Ruby: Yes.
