Skier's Prayer

I'm in Bonn and Cologne at the moment meeting with people for my project. Tomorrow I head to Austria for a couple of days of skiing. Since I'm traveling without my computer, I won't be posting again until Saturday. But in anticipation of my trip, I present this little prayer:-)

Please let my legs be limber and the snow be fluffy,
May the town not be overrun by people named Muffy;

Let the chairlift be strong and ready to ride,
May the ski patrol be hot (I mean qualified);-)

May I remember to turn, so Granny will be proud,
If I schuss down a run or two, we just won’t say it out loud!

Let the huette be cozy and the cocoa hot,
May my Tirol dinner involve melted cheese in a pot.

If I must fall, please let it look graceful,
I do love the snow, but not a whole face full!

May I not get a blister or a sunburn,
If the good Lord allows it, may I one day return.
