Further back, there was clique of middle schoolers clinging to their Razor scooters, who seemed equally as scared as I was. They stood against the fence, condemned to a life of being the Razor scooter kids at a skatepark. I related to them because I, too, was an odd person out. Instead of wearing a very cool hat like everyone else, I was wearing a bulky helmet because I didn't want to experience a fatal head injury.

Tackling my phobia of teens could wait, but I would at least have to attempt rolling up and down an incline. So I got up at 6 AM the next morning and headed back with my crew, which had dwindled down to just my boyfriend, who was mainly acting as my photographer. Good thing there's not a teen in the world who wakes up at 6 AM when school is out. When I got there, there were only two guys in their 20s practicing, meaning there was plenty of room for me to make a fool of myself. I quickly realized that the falls I had been experiencing while skating on the street were nothing compared to the spills one takes at the park. While attempting to skate up a softly sloped, three-foot quarter pipe, I skidded off my board and smashed my elbow. Later I banged up my hip and my knee doing something similar. My damn helmet didn't do a thing, except make me look bad. I had I come in with a plan to drop in on a big daddy quarter pipe, and end this article on a note of triumph, but when I stood at the top of one I became fairly certain I would die if I tried it. I clearly was not ready: I really hadn't even mastered turning around yet.

To use the spoon pipe, the user packs the smoking material into the bowl headpiece and with the lighter they can get to smoke. Most spoons also feature a carburetor, also referred to as a carb hole.
The carb hole is a simple hole that is found on the side of the bowl head. When smoking with the hole covered, the smoke is drawn in through the burning herb and is collected inside the bowl. Once the carb hole is uncovered, air gets in allowing the smoke to be rapidly inhaled resulting in fresher smoke.

The term bowl is used regularly to describe the slide portion of a bong.
