I had quite a happy St Patrick’s Day..and i didn’t down seventeen pints of Guinness or a bottle and a half of Irish whiskey (traditional forms of “celebrating” the day in Éireann)..
No, i just got my skis out and downed a cornice on my local mountain a couple of times. Hardly a typical Irish way to celebrate(!)..and maybe not such a big deal but this is the same spot where i had the accident last year that threatened to put an end to my skiing shenanigans*. Certainly i thought it unlikely even up to a month ago that i’d be doing much in the way of jumping off cornices on skis again..just goes to show, you never really know. Truth be told, i was dropping in more than jumping..but i’m happy enough with myself one way or another!
*shenanigans: colloquial American English with a hint of Irish in it, meaning mischief, playing pranks or tricks, playing around.
