You Want to Be a Ski Bum? First you need a nickname


At the heart of it, we all yearn for a great nickname. We want to engage in secret handshakes with our homeys, for the bartender to pour our signature drink before we even sit down at the bar, and most of all, we want to be lauded for our foibles. A great nickname can, at once, hail our flaws and transform our weakness to heroics. And isn’t that what we all want? To be known and accepted for who we are?

My ski bum name is “Curly Fingers Smith”. I’m not sure how that ranks against my porn star name: “Fluffy Love”, but it’s pretty darn close. So let’s hear it. What is your ski bum name?
