When you finally push past that awkward stage of yo-yoing, where you barely understand how to throw it and landing a trick is more painful than a root canal, you may find yourself at a point where you never want to put the yoyo down. I’ve been there and at times I still feel as though I am. If by chance my hand was bitten off by a crocodile with a clock in its stomach, I think would I opt to replace my hand with a permanent yoyo rather than a hook.

The only downside to this quaint addiction is that, at times, you may feel as though you never quite get to practice enough. The solution? Be creative!

One of my favorite places to yoyo is standing in line at a store waiting to checkout. What makes this so perfect is that you’re constrained by utter boredom. So, why not pass the time by throwing down your beloved yoyo and showing off your illustrious skills. Just keep in mind that when you hear the cashier (and other customers in line behind you) bellow out that your next, don’t keep them waiting.

I have found myself getting in little amounts of practice in a variety of places besides checkout lines: elevators, in school going from class to class, and even sitting on a bus.
