New Thing #307: Zipfy Mini Luge


My mother-in-law got myself and Audrey matching big person/little person versions of the Zipfy Mini Luge this Christmas.

I was a bit skeptical when I first opened up the midget racer. It’s just so tiny…and more than a little phallic looking. But I soon found myself zipping down the hill next to Audrey and going faster and further than I ever had on any other sled.

It takes some getting used to in terms of steering (as the video clearly shows) but by the time I left I was really getting the hang of it.

Oddly enough, I found the kid-sized version much easier to keep straight than the adult. I suspect it has something to do with my total lack of an ass.

Can’t wait to hit the slopes again!
