Skiing is no longer necesary...

Postby Dave B » Mon Nov 04, 2013 11:43 am

...Because you can now simply wear your ski goggles to the tanning bed/spray booth and get that "I've totally been like out skiing all day" look without actually having to go skiing. Up next, eight minute abs.

When the s**t hit the fan, she obviously didn't get out of the way.

She doesn't have a smile tan line - obviously a fake. Or should I say, a s**t eating grin. Skiing = happiness :-D

She sort of looks like she's been skiing behind me! :oops:

I've never mistaken skiing as necessary.

It comes *highly* recommended as a luxury, however.
