Wherein I Make Up for the Magic Carpet Ride

There are certain people in my life [cough, cough Kary cough, cough Gerhard] who like to bring up THIS VIDEO every single time they see me. Every. Single. Time.

OK, fine. I see why. It’s hilarious and stupid and I nearly give myself a concussion. What’s not to love?

But I promise you, while we are up here in Winter Park for Spring Break, I have not subjected any other poor skiers to the torment they experienced that day at Arapahoe Basin. I really think the dude who nearly walked right over me on the magic carpet is probably still in therapy. Sking and me? Oil and water.

But *TUBING* and me?

    I am one who can watch the Magic Carpet Ride and NOT laugh. Because I can’t ski. At all. My dad took us up to Eldora when I was in high school. It took 2 instructors an entire afternoon just to teach me to turn. And then they let me go to the top of the bunny hill. I panicked on the way down, and forgot how to stop. I just kept going faster, and almost ran over some people. I even went so far I was over the ridge of snow they put at the base of the hill, and finally stopped about 2 feet from the parking lot.

    I’ve never lived that one down.
