Okay, this is what I've gotten so far...
1) Do nothing else except keep learning and following the code
2) Be consistent, even if I don't have the skills to do so
3) If I can't be consistent, then I should at least try to be consistently INconsistent, so as not to confuse anyone, because the most confusing to others is when I am inconsistently inconsistent
4) Look over my shoulder
5) Don't look over my shoulder
6) Glance with peripheral vision over my shoulder so as not to inadvertantly turn my skis erratically and cause even more inconsistency
7) Glance over my shoulder to make sure that Lance Armstrong isn't overtaking me without a helmet on
8) Don't stop on the side of the trail
9) Don't stop in the middle of the trail
10) Stop in the middle of the trail if there is a post to hide behind
11) Don't stop behind any posts that might be below chairlifts
12) Don't ski in front of potheads
13) Don't ski in front of kids
14) Don't ski in front of 70's guys with bluejeans
15) Only ski UNpopular green slopes and only at odd hours of the day
16) Only ski green slopes that don't have expert run-offs at the end of the day, but true experts won't really hit me anyway
17) Ski faster, but only if Jan Ullrich is behind me and threatening to swerve uphill to me on a bump run.
It's all SOOOoooooo clear to me now!!!!
Seriously, thanks so much for all the input -- though I sure wish I could get hold of some of that secret formula that superheros always seem to swallow -- I want to grow eyestalks on the back of my head!
Failing that, I guess I should get a helmet.
