If You Forgot Your Spouse

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 

Take off from the helmet thread.

 

If you got up in the morning real careful not to wake up the spouse and when you got to the ski area you realized the spouse told you that they wanted to ski/ride today.    .  Would you go back home to get your spouse? 

 

If its an awesome powder day does that change your answer ?

If I forgot my spouse? 

 

No, I wouldn't go home. I'd be too afraid.

I find it best to leave "the spouse" at her home where her husband can find her...

Ah, No!

I would not go back home to get him.  I'd probably call him and tell him to let me know when he gets there so we can meet up.

 

I forgot my ski jacket one day, when he was supposed to drive separately because we had obligations in different directions at the end of the day.

I called to ask him to bring my jacket, and I'd make do with my light shell until he got there.  He decided to work on his ice bike instead of bring me my jacket..........

Did I mention that it was -10f?

 

On the upside(s) I made do fine with my light shell, and his ice bike runs sweeeeet!

I'd go with a High Performance Demo, particularly a place where you can switch out during the course of the day. It wouldn't matter if the cost went towards the purchase..I am not interested in purchasing. Heh, people are complaining about excess baggage charges with the airlines, doing it this way saves you the cost for a whole 'nother seat!

Spouse? What's that?

Baggage  Want to travel efficiently ?  Take less baggage. You can Demo at the resort if you choose to.

Wow, this brings up a bunch of questions in my mind.  First off, how is this related to the helmet thread?

 

and then,

 

What type of relationship do you have with your spouse? 

 

Is your spouse an avid skier? 

 

Do you just love skiing with your spouse, is your day incomplete unless you ski with your spouse? 

 

Will you be guilt ridden all day without your spouse?

 

And of course, why do you care what other people do if they forgot their spouse?  Is your's on a rampage because you forgot them and you need some social support of your forgetfullness? 

 

Inquiring minds want to know! ( or maybe it's just me) .

My spouse would be thrilled to have been allowed to sleep.

Depends on if I take the kids or leave them home too.

If my spouse told me she wanted to go skiing I would probably drop dead on the spot from coronary failure. But if I lived, I would definitely not forget. Catskills, count your blessings that you have a partner who "gets it" and doesn't say things like, "didn't you just go skiing a couple of weeks ago?"

My wife has not skied for a few years now.  Last fall she finally  bit bullet and had Total Knee Replacement.  So far so good. We will see how she feels next season. Needless to say if she asked me to go skiing I would not be forgetting it in the morning.  That would be a special day.

 

As for my relationship with my wife and is she an avid skier.  Lets just say I am not skiing with my wife on a powder day.    We could start another thread on who skis with their spouse on powder days.

So, is this an official 'Helmet' or 'Helmet take-off' thread making this the 14th (I counted) on first page?

 

Or, is this a 'F#CK!!! I forgot the wife' thread?

 

I'll go with the wife...never forgot her, it would be imposable, the car would actually be quiet and I would have left on time. Go back for her? Though question, I'm a dead man either way, might as well make it worth it.

Since we have to make a special trip to go skiing, no, I wouldn't forget my spouse.

I also have another reason. We went to Utah in 2006. I had prebooked the trip in 2005, about 1 week before my husband almost died in a car accident. His residual injury was a broken leg that needed a plate and a muscle graft to close. In April, he was walking but his muscle graft hadn't been revised and, although he cut a hole in his liners, his boot rubbed on the skin graft covering the muscle graft. So he opted not to go skiing. I broke my board that day and dislocated my shoulder and, between crawling to a place ski patrol could get me, riding the gondola with a dislocated shoulder, riding in the ambulance with a dislocated shoulder and the 2 attempts by the clinic doc to relocate my shoulder (after it had been dislocated for over an hour) without medication, both he and I were upset. I don't think he feels comfortable with me doing anything on the snow by myself...

That's one of the three things that are cheaper to rent than own.

Maybe this will answer. One vacation at Killington my spouse bought a new pair of boots. After one day in them she needed some more adjustment and wanted to stop at the shop before hitting the hill. OK, it was a powder day so I dropped her off at the shop and went and skied a few hours before I went back to get her. Honey, I explained, there are no spouses on a powder day.

 

Surprisingly we are still married, must be love or she's still waiting for the perfect revenge. I'm not sure which it is.

I met my wife on an epic powder day. She was a co-worker of a friend of mine's wife. I was the only one who would ski with her despite her being hot. I only skied with her in the afternoon though.

 

as for the original question, I'd ski, then when I got home use "when did you tell me you wanted to go skiing?"

Seconded. After the second week end in a row I went skiing...the muttering began.

BTW she is "just" a beginner, never-ever, so in case of powder day...

This winter never skied because had surgery on one foot, last winter skied once, but life kept getting inthe way (injuries, family to take care of, skating team to train etc).

So, it was not a matter of "forgetting" her, but of "leaving her behind"...Came with us on a week end trip but "just" walked around for hours,

I'm desperate for her to take up skiing, or boarding, watherver she comes to like, so to spend  some time on the hill, have her addicted to the sport and so have the perfect excuse to go...

I think that if you forget your spouse...maybe you shouldnt be married.   I would not forget my SO....just wouldnt happen....ski days are far too planned for me to forget who is going, especially the person I live with.

If Momma want to go - she can get her @$$ up and go.

 

Besides  - odds of me and 2 little boys NOT waking Mom as we clunk and bang out the door are 0.0.
