Putting your eggs in one basket: What single prototyping tool to learn.

A question I keep running up against from colleagues and friends in the field: If I only have time to learn one technology to help enhance my IxD practices (such as basic wireframing), which one should it be?
I get this question a lot, and I'm torn on the answer. Most of my colleagues do very precise wireframes using omnigraffle (near pixel perfect), but there's certainly a push to do more interactive prototyping, and I agree that we all need to be getting better at that if we don't want to go the way of the dodo. But I'm torn on the answer. There are a lot of great technology sets / apps out there than can help, but if pressed to give only one, I'm not sure what I would choose.
Any of you have any thoughts on this? If you could only dedicate your time to becoming very strong at one ptototyping crutch, which one would you choose? I'd love to hear thoughts.
