Riding …

So I took a snowboarding lesson today. And I learned a few things.

1) I suck.

2) The chairlifts are a lot more daunting when you are 31 years old and there’s a 400 lb snowboard hanging off one foot.

3) I forgot to take ANY pictures, so I have no proof. You’ll have to take my word for it.

4) I think my left wrist is broken.

5) I think both my ankles are broken, or at least cracked slightly.

6) I suck.

7) I now need a fleece-covered butt pillow (extra large, because, you know) to sit on.

8) I am bad-ass! I went snowboarding! Boo to the yah. It was on my bucket list and now I can cross it off.

9) I actually was not that bad. My lesson went well and I made it down the beginner slopes twice.

10) Alaska3 is having a great time. She is going snowboarding AGAIN tomorrow. Not me.

POST-EDIT: I discovered some new aches and pains this morning, including my knees. Anyone have a cane I can borrow?

One response to “Riding …”

  1. Thank God you finally suck at something!!! Sorry. But, you are pretty, like, athletic and stuff. I am really sitting here laughing out loud. Jay wants to know why. I'm just happy that someone sucks at snowboarding like I suck at skiiing. So hard, so bad, and wicked bad.
