So one thing that I feel like everyone has done except for me is go skiing. My family and I went to the mountains in New Mexico every year growing up, but it was always in the summer. We did visit Santa Fe during the holidays twice, but we were too busy partaking in activities that didn't involve potentially decapitating ourselves to hit the slopes.
I actually went so far as to go on a ski trip with some friends in college, but never actually went skiing. Truth be told, I only went on the trip to spend more time around a boy I liked, and since he wasn't planning to ski, the decision to stay back and hang at the house was clearly an easy one for me (Clara, if your future self is reading this, please don't follow my example).
Speaking of boys I like, Brian is a big fan of skiing, so I suppose we'll take the kids one day, but chances are high that I will hang back and enjoy looking at the snow from the warmth of the indoors. Don't get me wrong - I'm all about enjoying the great outdoors, but from what I've gathered, skiing is:
And those 4 adjectives don't make for an ideal vacation activity in my book. And while I like to think I'm still in pretty decent shape, I'm not getting any younger, so I don't know how well my body would even respond at this point.
Here's me and Brian (ALMOST ELEVEN YEARS AGO AND HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE?!) hanging out in the snow and not skiing during a trip to California
So now it's your turn: what one thing have you never done that most people have?
