When I was a kid, we used to sled down old Cemetery Hill.
It was, as the name suggests, a hill at the local cemetery.
We didn’t have to dodge tombstones or anything but we DID have to watch out for the forest at the bottom of the hill.
One day, my friends and I had an idea after having watched National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation.
We had one of those round metal discs… and some cooking oil and… we decided to polish the bottom of this disc and take turns.
And so we did.
We buffed and buffed and buffed and… got the bottom of that thing to shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine.
You wanna know something?
Obviously not like the movie, but we still zipped down that hill lickety-split.
Pro tip: do NOT go downhill on your stomach if you decide to try this.
You will get a mouthful of snow the first bump you hit and then… you will spin around in circles uncontrollably shooting snow out your mouth like one of those mechanical snow-making machines you see at ski resorts… until you wipe out or roll into a tree or something.
Anyway, enough shenanigans.
On to bid’naz.
