OK, you young'uns might not appreciate this but I just have to share.
My daughter (age 12, straight A student) just relayed a conversation she had had with one of her teachers this last spring. This was on a Monday after we had played hooky the previous Friday at Crystal Mountain. She had admitted taking off to go skiing.
Teacher: "You don't seem even a little ashamed to admit you skipped school to go skiing."
Daughter: "Hey, it was a win-win for everybody. You didn't have to put up with me in class, and I didn't have to put up with you in the lift lines."
