Behind The Awkwardness: Backseat Rider

December 27th, 2012

Christmas of 1982.  I was 2 years old and obviously not the favorite child.  My only option was to take a “back seat” to my sister, Meghan (age 5) if I wanted to sled ride, even if it meant riding on my stomach down the slope.  Apparently this was seemed like a safe idea to my dad (pictured) and my mom who snapped this shot!  This picture pretty much sums up the next 30 years of my life.

    Parents take heed! This will NOT get you into the best nursing home money can buy when you get older.

    I was told the rudder was the most important part of the “snow ship.”
