Laughter Mondays

No corny joke today.

Just one HILARIOUS youth ministry story:

A youth minister friend of mine took a bunch of teens skiing one time. 
The very first run of the day, he took a group to the top of the mountain. 
There was a sweet girl w/ them, let's call her Grace, who, bless her heart, was not always the brightest crayon in the box, if you know what I mean.  Just as they got off the lift at the top of the mountain, she decided that she had to use the bathroom.  Period.  There was no holding it. 

So being the accomodating youth minister he was, Gordy instructed all the teens to gather in a circle around this little gal while she did her business.

Only one problem.

Grace didn't take off her skis.  And as she bent to squat to do her business, the skis were pointed straight down the mountain. 

So as you could probably guess, gravity did it's thing, and she took off, straight down the slopes w/ her ski bibs around her ankles and her booty shinin' bright for all the world to see.

You can just imagine the shock of Gordy and the rest of the teens as they witnessed the craziness.  It was a site to behold, that's for sure.

Well, to make a bad situation worse, the poor girl was somewhat inexperienced at skiing, and didn't know how to stop proficiently.  So part way down the mountain she decided to bail.

Right into a tree.  ouch.

Grace (fitting name, don't cha think?) ended up breaking BOTH her ankles.  No bueno.

So needless to say, she was in alot of pain, and super embarassed.  But thankfully, the ski patrol was a Johnny-on-the-spot, and rescued her quickly from her misery.

But it doesn't end there.
We're just gettin' to the good part!

You see, just as the ambulance was fixin' to leave to take Miss Grace to the hospital, they got a call to wait.  Apparently, another injured skier was on the way down the mountain.

Several minutes later, the ski patrol showed up with a man who was walking with both hands out in front of him in splints. 

As soon as everyone got situated and the ambulance took off for the hospital, Gordy, who was accompanying Grace, asked the gentleman what happened.

He said, "You're not gonna believe this, but I was sitting on the ski lift, when out of the corner of my eye, I see this young girl skiing down the mountain with her pants around her ankles!  As I turned to watch the "full moon" pass by, I lost track of what I was doing, and fell straight out of the ski lift and broke both my arms catching myself!" 

True story.

Oh my goodness!
Can you imagine?!?! 

Everytime I tell this, I get the most hysterical pictures in my head of all these events occurring. 
Poor Grace.
But what a story, huh?! 

I hope your Monday is exciting!  But just don't go around mooning people or falling outta ski lifts, k?
