Fairy Tale Friday

The girls have been working hard over the last few weeks, so decide to have a ‘down day’ and do something fun.  Now the girls from Scandinavia are stuck in Scotland, and miss the chance to get out and ski.  After much discussion, the girls decide to go to the local indoor ski centre for the day.
The met up at the minibus on Tuesday morning, all raring to go.  The girls from Scandinavia decked out in jeans and t-shirts (they’re used to the cold), the others had found whatever woolly garments they could find.  T-shirts with two jumpers, scarves and jackets.  Big padded boots, hats and gloves were the order of the day.  Except for Gayle, who is cold even when it’s 90 degrees outside.  Four jumpers and two jackets she had.  Six pairs of socks on her feet, below the heavy hiking boots.  She looked like the female Michelin Man lumbering towards the car.
Gayle was driving as usual.  Every gear change brought out a whine or a growl from the minibus as she couldn’t move her arms and legs properly, let alone see over her scarves.
Finally they arrived and went to the ticket office.  As usual, Gayle paid, but it took 20 minutes for her to pull off the mittens, gloves, and fingerless gloves.  Then she had to find her purse which was in a pocket in one of her jumpers. 
And finally they were on the ski run.  The Scandinavian girls had their ski’s on, and were already at the top of the hill.  Gayle, with her dodgy knees was sledging, and  spent the next twenty minutes trying to pull the sledge up the hill.  It was only at this point when half way up she turned to see Debbie was sitting on the sledge behind her.  Gayle let go, and Debbie sitting on the sled, slid down the hill, picking up speed, and knocking all the other skiers down as if it was a bowling alley.  She arrived at the bottom of the hill where she was quickly surrounded by lots of people shouting and complaining.   Gayle made a break for it.
Donna, was never really sporty.  She decided that it would be cool to build herself an igloo, and she dug up blocks of packed snow from the hill, and took them to a flat area where she could build her masterpiece.  She’s been doing this for an hour when Elaine came skiing down hill, flopped straight into the big hole that Donna had just dug, and she careered across the snow smashing into Maritha’s half built igloo.  Three more people landed on top of Debbie.  And yes, you guessed it, more shouting and complaining.
The manager entered the skiing area to find half a dozen arguments taking place.  Each of them begun by one of the design team girls.  Normally the girls are all barred from places in a single group, but the manager wasn’t aware they were a single group, so now all the girls seem to have their own paperwork and mug shots behind the reception desk.
