Bus Surf

Every now and then, I visit one of my favorite websites, . Today I just did. To my surprise, I found a word that I never knew ever existed. It's one of the words of the day! How awesome is that?! My secret childhood game has now gone public!! I can't believe it. It's quite a joyful moment for me right now.
Bus Surfing: The act of attempting to ride a bus by standing in the aisle like a surfer. The goal is to stand for as long as possible without touching anything (seats, poles, people) for support. Often a competition between two people to see who can stand the longest. (i.e. ''On the way home last night I was bus surfing for a full 3 minutes!'')
I always thought I was the ONLY one that knew of this game. I always thought this was MY invention (until today). Every since Junior High (My Alta Loma days) I've always played this game with myself while riding on SamTrans bus to and from school. I'd only play if seats were not available. Back then I was too ashamed to bring it up so I'd silently compete with friends, acquaintenances, and complete strangers without them knowing. 99% of the time, I'd win. Let's just say I have very good balance. It's all about the bent knees and wide stance. LOL!! Now that urban dictionary formerly introduced this game. I would like to challenge someone. Who's up for the 1st Annual Bus Surfing contest of San Francisco!!!!????? I've never played this game riding the MUNI though so who's game?
