Ralph impatiently began to punch in phone numbers in order to phone the ski patrol ….”I need to get an answer to this hold up!”, he grumbled. “I mean, after this slope, I am supposed to meet Niki and Josh for an après ski drink!” Ralph was not the world’s most patient skier and there was always “something” beyond what he had to do next, somewhere to go, places to be, people waiting for him. Mandy almost wished she had stayed home and given up the idea of learning to ski with Ralph……..honestly! Like an après ski drink couldn’t wait. And honestly….did he REALLY have the phone number for the ski patrol?
