My Sly Hat

My Sly Hat
Originally uploaded by botogol.
So, I am half-way down Mount Slushmore in the low-lying French Alps and running through my mind are three thoughts:
1. My right knee hurts; should I wear my old-man knee support tomorrow?
2. Next year perhaps we should go to Colorado?
3. Did I really just spend eighteen euros on two plates of chips and an orangina?

And I slide slushily past a couple of bright pink and green skiers, verlcroed to a safety pole on the edge of the piste and at the top of a vertiginous drop. Mt Blanc clearly visible in the distance.

And as I go by I she says to him, quite quietly, "but darling, I AM panicking"

And he says: "did you see that sly hat"
