That makes sense for a little girl growing up in Newport Beach, California where snow was just something I saw in pretty, glass globes at Christmas time. My parents did not ski, my friends could barely even spell skiing, so when I finally did hit the slopes ten years later, let's just say that thankfully the man who's back I used as a crash pad on the intermediate slope, following my first semi-successful run down the beginner's slope, did not end up in the hospital. He ended up in the chalet. Without saying a word, he walked slouched
