I looked at the ski's. They looked at me. I heard your voices in my head...(or what I imagine your voices would sound like if I actually knew).
You were telling me to do one ski. Why not?
I told the the fam that I was going to slalom. They looked at me with that half cocked head, raised eyebrows, and a tone of concern that one gives someone when they have doubt. But I decided to go for it anyways. If I had got up one ski when I was seven, I could do it now at 30...lighter and fitter than I have ever been.
I wore my weight lifting gloves (good recommendation). I put the ski on, grabbed the rope, and yelled hit it. And without a wobble, plowing water, or falling...
I was up. hahahahaha....I couldn't believe it. But I was skiing! And I did it again later!
I was a very happy girl. I couldnt wait to share with you guys.
