MEMORY ON SNOW AND WINTER

 THE THEME OF THIS TIME IS "WINTER" SO CAN YOU GUYS TALK ABOUT SOMETHING RELATED LIKE "SNOW". DO YOU HAVE NICE MEMORY ABOUT SNOW?
SAKURAI I can think of one thing! In Takatsuka city.
OHNO Ah... yes. Is that in 1998?
SAKURAI It was during Shonen Tai concert in Takatsuka Hall. We were doing back-up dance and I remembered it snowed very hard. That was during the adult ceremony peried (January), wasn't it?
OHNO The snow wasn't just falling, it was pouring so hard that the train got to stop running. I can't go back home and I was in trouble.
 OF COURSE, WE GOT IN TROUBLE SOMETIMES WHEN THE SNOW IS POURING HARD. BUT DON'T YOU HAVE ANY FUN MOMENT WITH SNOW?
MATSUMOTO I am living in a mansion. And snow used to fall so hard that it covered all the stairs. I can't see the steps at all so I made a sliding plate with a flat stuff and slided it down the stairs.
NINOMIYA Uwa..... that was a really fun memory (laugh)
AIBA That stairs seemed like a ski playground (laugh)
MATSUMOTO That's because I was just an elementary school kid anyway (laugh)
SAKURAI When I was a kid, I used to go skiing with my friends. At the hotel we were staying, there was that wide slope just in front of the bathroom. Whe we took a bath, we used to walk off to thh ski playground wearing nothing at all
AIBA Ah... that must be nice ... (-_-") how, Aiba-chan, how? ^0^
OHNO I also used to go to Hokkaido when I had to do back-up dance for our Johnny's senior group. I once walked out of the hotel bearfooted to the convenience store. And I was wearing only Yukata.
SAKURAI I thought what I did was mad, but the thing you did was more silly (laugh)
OHNO And you know what, I thought I was going to the convenience store, but when I reached there it was the gas station. The store was overthere and my feet were already very cold. Still I walked off again to the store, did some shopping and walked back to the hotel
NINOMIYA That's great of you, Leader (laugh) Somehow, we kinda feel high tension when we see snow. Not only snow, I also feel high when it's raining. It's great to walk under the rain, without umbrella

AIBA When I went snowboarding, I broke my bone.
NINOMIYA Ah... you seemed to have fun (laugh)
AIBA It was the only time I used the lift to carry me to the top of the mountain. And I broke my bone very early that morning
NINOMIYA So you want the money you paid for the lift back (laugh)
AIBA Yes (laugh) and I was brought to a hospital nearby...... Ah! I thought that we should all go to skii together
EVERYONE Eh?!?!?
SAKURAI When did you have this kind of thought?
NINOMIYA You just think about this just now, right? (laugh)
MATSUMOTO I won't drive this time
SAKURAI That'll be exhausting
AIBA We should be exhausted! We're still young! ha ha ha ha Clever ha? Aiba-chan :)
MATSUMOTO But we can't go skiing and came back on the same day for sure
AIBA I guess so
NINOMIYA Once we arrive to the hotel, it would get dark already
AIBA Ne.... come on! Go to the place where the hot spring is near !!
MATSUMOTO Then.... let's go to just a hotspring, and pretend there are slopes outthere ... Slope magic, what do you think?
AIBA Let's go!
NINOMIYA Leader! It's now depends on you should or shouldn't we go skiing!
AIBA Yes! cause you will be the one who will head the trip
OHNO If there is a hotpot party (hot food), then I'll go
AIBA Well, let's have a hotpot party at night then!
 + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +
OHNO I used to ski only once in my life, also I played snowboard only once too
 DOES ANYONE CAN TEACH OHNO-KUN HOW TO PLAY SNOWBOARD ?
AIBA Not me, cause I'm not quite good at that too....
SAKURAI Didn't you just say 'not quite good'?!?! You shouldn't ! The word 'not quite good' is not for a guy who don't know how to ski like you! Don't make people mistaken you! (laugh) ^-^ kawaii~
AIBA Well, well, you're right (laugh)
NINOMIYA From what you said, it seemed that you were snowboarding before you got bad luck and broke your bone .... so your skiing skill was not improving.... right? (laugh)
AIBA That was the first time I go snowboard and I broke my bone. That was why after that I was afraid of snowboarding (laugh quietly) If I didn't broke my bones that time, now I would getting more skillful for sure
 SO WHO IS THE BEST IN SNOWBOARDING?
AIBA No one. Even Shou-kun barely slips off too
NINOMIYA Slip off..... well (laugh)
SAKURAI What do you mean by that (laugh)
AIBA So we will just go having a hot pot party and taking a hot spring, that's all
NINOMIYA Last time, the 4 of us (except Shou-kun) went to a hot spring together. It didn't work out! We spent the time bathing there for only about 15 minutes and we went back ....
AIBA Well then, we will just have to figure out our main purpose for the trip in our heart first. Keep it planed up and then we'll see!! Alright?!?
