Heely’s and Tony Hawk

A discussion on “Heely’s.”
K: Do you know them shoes that you can be rollin around on?
Mr. C: Heely’s?
K: Yeah, when they first came out, my brother and I got our first pair at the same time.
Mr. C: Oh yeah?
K: We skated down the aisles while my mom was shopping.
Mr. C: That sounds fun.
K: We were skating everywhere we wanted to skate.
S: I got me a pair of those too.
Mr. C: They were pretty popular for a while.
S: Yeah I was Tony Hawking down the hallways, having too much fun.
Mr. C: Well until they banned them from the schools.
K: Yeah, they was fun though.
To my knowledge, this is the first time Tony Hawk has been used as a verb.

J: Man my skateboard broke.
Mr. C: Oh yeah?
J: Either that or I need to tighten a screw.
Mr. C: Okay.
J: It’s cause I went off the roof onto a car.
Mr. C: (Thinking he is joking) What like Bart Simpson? In the opening of the show?
J: Yeah but I did it for real. And I didn’t fall. I went off the roof and rode down the windshield and then went down the hill in my neighborhood.
Mr. C: Wow.
