Daily Sketch: Unicycle Lass!

True tale, here: When I was in elementary school, there was one girl who had a unicycle. She rode it around like most kids rode bikes, or even more, like most kids walked. She could take it up hills, up STAIRS, across traffic- just utterly assured. And it wasn't a stunt or an attention ploy, just her preferred means of transport. Of course she was my friend, as how could I not be friends with someone that cool?



And yes, she also had a green turtleneck that she wore with uniform regularity.

Also, I need some reference for a unicycle. Clearly, huh?

What a great sketch, and what a fabulous story. Did you ever learn to ride her unicycle?

Kila- Wow, thank you! I shall endeavor to stay sketchy.:)

Earlybird- She really was great. A master with the UFO catcher machine, too.

Kara-No, she tried to teach me, but I fail at all things physical. Heck, even roller skating came to be backasswards. But here's how Unicycool she was: she could cycle at my walking speed. Hardcore.

TiLT: The friend? or the sketches? 'Cause they both were.:)
