Okay, the title is a lame pun. Do the rimshot sound effect in your head if you must. I'm giving up my skis:
They sure were a ton of fun in high school, back when the only tough financial decision I ever had to make was: "What fun entertaining thing should I spend my paycheck on this week?" It seems sad to say it, but I have only been skiing a grand total of one time in past nine years. And you know what? I don't really miss it all that much. Especially not this year, as snow seems to have become an endangered species.
