Ski holiday this weekend! I am struggling to make progress as a skiier–but it’s hard work for this old b!tch to learn new tricks! I’m hoping that my ultra-stylish apres-skiwear will compensate for my clinging to the green dots and blue squares on the slopes. “NO JIB ZONE” = just my style!
I’ve found that it’s a good thing, if frustrating and a little scary at times, NOT to be good at something. It’s been a long time since I felt completely incompetent and outclassed by everyone around me, including in most cases the preschoolers who don’t even have poles yet. . . but, I had a powder day a few weeks ago at Winter Park, and that was lots of fun! So I will work harder to have more fun.
Meanwhile, for those of you stuck indoors at your computers or in front of classrooms, check out Bardiac’s response to yesterday’s post about entertaining candidates originally inspired by her post earlier this week. She and her colleagues have to pay their own way, plus cover the candidate’s dinner, which certainly calls into question whether or not their candidates’ dinners are in fact business dinners at all. While there is no excuse for conversational rudeness, this fact makes me feel a little more sympathetic to her colleagues.
