One day a novice skier went up a mountain that any
beginner should have avoided. No one would have blamed her if she
stayed behind. At 12 below zero, even Frosty the Snowman would have
opted for a warm fire. Hardly a day for snow skiing, but her husband
insisted. So... she bravely went.
While waiting in the lift line, she realized she was in dire need of
having to visit a restroom. Assured there was a restroom at the top of
the lift, she endured the bouncy ride, only to find....there was no said
facility. (we knew that already, didn't we?)
She began to panic. Her husband had an idea: why not go out into the
woods? Since she was wearing an all white outfit, she'd blend in with
the snow and would not be noticed.
What choice did she have? She skied past the tree line
and arranged her ski suit at half-mast. Unfortunately... her husband
hadn't told her to remove her skis.
Inadvertently, she began sliding backwards across the
slope, without a chance to make herself 'presentable'. With arms
flailing and skis sailing, she sped under the very lift she'd just
ridden and collided with a pylon. Owww!!
As she scrambled to cover herself, she discovered that her arm was
broken. Fortunately, her husband raced to her rescue. He summoned the
ski patrol, who in return, transported her to the nearby hospital.
While being treated in the emergency room, a man with a broken leg was
carried in and placed next to her. By now she'd regained her composure
enough to make some small talk.
"Hi, my name's Karen. So, how'd you break your leg?" she asked.
"Name's David. It was the strangest thing you ever saw," he explained.
"I was riding up the mountain ski lift and suddenly, out of nowhere,
comes this crazy woman skiing backwards, at top speed, with her ski suit
down around her knees. I couldn't believe my eyes, so I leaned over to
get a better look. I guess I didn't realize how far I'd moved, though.
Sigh....I fell out of the lift."
Then he turned to her and asked,
"So, how'd you break your arm?"
