Guess what. You CAN teach an old dog new tricks.
Probably most people don't wait till age 35 to try waterskiing for the first time.
My heart was pounding as I awkwardly strapped on the skis. People were giving me advice right and left. My main goal was to avoid looking like a total idiot. Thankfully it only took me 3 tries to get up out of the water and after that I was able to go for a good bit without falling. However, in just about every photo, my brows are knit in a look of grave concern and my mouth is grimacing, not smiling. And can I just say that my arms are SORE. It's hard work, waterskiing, but it is a fun feeling that I'm glad I got to experience!
