because my new, beautiful snowboard that i am absolutely in love with, is seriously FAST.
and when you're going FAST and catch an edge, you fall HARD.
and when you fall HARD, face-first, skidding at least 20 feet before you finally come to a stop, on each of the 2 consecutive days you were riding*, you tend to have some soreness the next day.
and i'm talking the kind of soreness that won't let you check your blind spot without wincing. that won't let you roll over in bed without a helper and some serious effort. and that makes you clutch your over-used abs and bruised torso and sound like this when you laugh at a particularly funny scene from last night's "family guy"- *giggle giggle,ouch! giggle, seriously, ow-ouch! hahaha! fuck i'm not kidding i'm hurting! giggle*
*with the first fall merely knocking the wind out of you, while the second also knocks off your helmet and breaks your goggles
