Gerome the legend

Silly things men-boys do. “Professional driver on closed course; skilled, experienced stunt driver. Do not attempt” Hell – that’s just an invitation to borrow or steal  4-wheeler and head out to destroy ecosystems.

Gerome was one of those thrill seekers. He was bored. No more life and death keeping him alive.

Then he saw Hesitation Bay on tv – old dock footings, rotting and sticking just out of the water. Jump from one to the other, then back. Time the stunt. Video for YouTube.

No sign of the party-boy. We talk about his adventures. He is legend. (97 words)

    It sounds like he pushed his luck too far! Some people love living on the edge.

      They sure do! Flipping through reality television or youtube shows just how stupid (or edgy) folks are. :)
