I smiled when I got the email from my BBC contact. He asked if I could do the second part of the live interview from my skateboard-propelled recliner via cell phone as I rolled through the streets of Richmond. The suggestion was as absurd and spontaneous as the Leisure Luge itself. I loved that.
The rain cleared up, I biked home and got the needed components: A recliner, an old skateboard, a helmet and a piece of plywood to stick between the skateboard and the recliner. I was ready to roll.
