So much for skipping

While attending the Brattleboro Literary Festival last October, I was reintroduced to the joys of skipping. 

My wife was less than supportive about my newfound joy, but I heard from at handful of readers who had taken my advice and tried skipping again after many years of non-skipping.

All reported it to be a unexpectedly joyous act.

So just when I thought that skipping could possess mainstream appeal, along comes The Skipper, a man destined to ruin skipping forever by making skipping look like the most ridiculous form of locomotion on the planet.

I hate when zealots destroy a perfectly wonderful thing with their complete lack of restraint.
