Newschoolers, I have a modest proposal for how we should go about identifying each other:
Some of you may be familiar with the TGR custom of a call and response to identify fellow mags upon meeting for the first time. Essentially, one person asks “Have you got change for a nickel?”, to which the other, if they are in the know, responds with something like “Fuck’n A!” (though I understand there is still some debate as to what the proper response is).
To the best of my knowledge (and searchbarring), there is no Newschoolers equivalent of “hitting someone up for change”. This is a grave oversight of culture and should be remedied immediately. I propose the following – We should “ask for directions”.
By this, I mean the first person would ask some variation of – “Do you know how to get to Chad’s Gap from the Alta parking lot?”, to which the proper response would obviously be “Ski patrol blew it up.”
Hmm…this might not be so modest after all. In fact, I think this is a damn good idea and well overdue.
