Let`s shred 2010!
Hey folks! Happy New Year! So this year I thought I would write a few diary entries that teach a bit of good old Western slang. Today`s word is SHRED! Now, the word shred literally means: to tear or cut something into small pieces. We put shredded cheese on pie crust to make pizza; use shredded potato to make croquets, or shred important paper documents so strangers can`t read the information on them. But shred is also commonly used as a verb when doing a sport like snowboarding. Imagine a big white field of powder snow, with no board tracks through it. Then imagine your snowboard is a big knife. As you ride through the snow, your snowboard cuts lines into the powder. You`re shredding the snow. And the faster you go, and the more turns and jumps you do, the harder you`re shredding. Hayden, Kim and I often shred together. Actually, I`ll be shredding Teine tomorrow! So, if you`re a snowboarder or skiier, I hope you get out there and shred it up. Whatever you do this year, try to shred your hardest and it`ll be a good year;)
