The chronic is an odd ski. You'll get three turns into a run, and
forget where you were going. You'll think you look like you are skiing
like a rock star, but really, you'll be going really slow and look
like an idiot, often with your blinker on. You'll giggle a lot. On the
lift ride you'll wonder what keeps the cable on the pulley. At lunch,
you will eat a ton, all sweet. After that, you won't get back on the
hill, you'll just fall asleep by the fire. Then you'll wake up with a
very dry mouth.

HTH.

You weren't participating in a controlled burn with a certain BLM guy
the day you tried these skis by any chance were you?
