I apologize in advance for the purposeful vagueness and school girl tone. So I am heading west with my family and a couple others next week for the ski trip at a popular resort. A week or so ago I learn that a friend/neighbor is related to a former olympic medalist who works at the resort. Anyway, checking email on the shared home laptop a few minutes ago and see that said Olympian, my wife, Olympian relative and others on the trip have conspired via email for a secret camera type encounter followed by skiing. Pretty cool (even seeing an email from the dude was disturbingly exciting). I am the local obsessed with skiing guy in the group, so they know I would appreciate, and I do. But, some questions,
1. Can I take him?
2. How long before he figures out I am a gaper?
3. How do I convince him that I used to be able to zipper line bumps (for moderate bursts) but that knee surgeries and age have resulted in gaperdom?
4. Can I borrow your Hart Javelin F17s?
In all seriousness, it is sort of intimidating. Any tips on how to handle? Sarcasm, humor, flaming welcome.
