I'm sure glad the fashion-police are back in force this year
If /when I take my kids to try skiing, you can be damn well sure they aren't going to be in Gore-tex or whatever the fashionably correct garments-of-the-season are. They will be wearing their regular winter coats and snow pants - tough noogies.
I AIN'T payin' for snooty-nosed gear until I know for sure it will be used, so you can save the snickering for later.
And Mom and Sugar Cube - we can clomp thru the parking lot together - just like in the Wizard of Oz!
I park my car, walk 50 yards and get on the snow - what could be easier?
