What a coincidence. The UPS guy just delivered a Mystery Parcel
from Foothills Ski and Bike that is just exactly that length. I
wonder what it could be.

You got your very own foothill as a birthday present? Is it big enough
to ski on?


Alas, no, but I suspect I got something very nearly as good...a pair
of Atomic super g skis...


Cor, can borrow them? I'm intending on doing my first masters race (on
snow) next year and us dry slope racers only have slalom skis!


Jeez, the things are still in the shrink wrap and some dry slope
racer wants to borrow them??? Nah, these babies are gonna get
babied as they deserve. I'm gonna drag out the mothballed ski
tools, give 'em a race tune and then wax and hot scrape about half a
dozen times...then go acquire some bindings for 'em...and then
they're gonna stay home, all nice and comfy and protected, until the
snow gets GOOD.

Don't forget to christen them properly by sacrificing a bottle of high
quality premium beer. Probably best done at the top of the hill right
before their maiden run. And don't cheap out and use that can of Coors
Light that you found floating in the river in June. Real beer for real
skis.
