Yes, I am actually sharing a story with you about when I peed my pants. Luckily it wasn’t a recent event.
This was originally an email to my loyal followers, but I got so many great replies and it’s been talked about so much I decided to share it in a blog post as well. Apparently I have absolutely no pride left!
I’m a Colorado native and began skiing when I was only four years old. That’s where the story of how I peed myself begins…
If you’ve ever been skiing you know they groom the area where most skier go. However on the edge and into the trees the snow can get really deep. One time, while bombing down the bunny slope in those early years, I fell down near the edge of the slope where the snow was deep. I landed in a crumpled heap in a deep pile of snow and couldn’t get myself out. I wallowed around for what seemed like an eternity!
I tried everything I knew to do and I would always fall back down – stuck awkwardly with little skis projecting out at strange angles. As a young skier I wasn’t using poles yet, so I didn’t have those to prop myself up on. The more I squirmed around the deeper I buried myself in the snow and the harder it got.
What I was doing wasn’t working. I would try and stand up, but then couldn’t pick my skis up out of the heavy snow. I would roll to my belly and try and push myself out, my arms would sink up to my shoulder and my skis would hit me in the back of the head. Gah…. I was so frustrated- I started to cry. I laid there feeling the cold snow sting my face and butt cheeks. Then things got worse…
I was a cold, snotty mess of tears…. and I really had to pee!
The harder I worked to get myself out the deeper I sunk into the snow. I felt helpless. But if I laid there any longer I would pee my pants. I was really stuck with no obvious way to get myself out.
Lucky for me, about that time an older gentleman came by and helped me dig out from the hole I had dug for myself. For someone with better skills who’d been around the ski slopes for a while he made it seem easy.
It wasn’t for a lack of trying, I just didn’t have the skills to do what needed to be done to get me out of the mess I was in. Although I keep trying and never gave up, the truth was I didn’t know what to do differently. The older wiser man shared with me his tips and tricks for getting out of a snow well. Once I had someone guide me how to navigate deep powder I never again got stuck! But I needed someone to show a different way of doing things.
No more than he had plucked me from my snow cave and helped me back to the groomed slope than the pee started to run down my pants! I was so embarrassed. Thank God for thick snow pants, and (absorbent) long underwear!
I’ve never been so relieved in my entire life! All of it – the being able to pee AND being out of that hole!
I cried my way back to the lodge and was done for the day.
I’ve come a long way since then. I’ve learned to ski better and even picked up snowboarding.. .have never again peed my pants on a ski slope… whew….
Have you ever felt so stuck, like everything you try just digs you in deeper and you just want to cry?
I totally get it!
