Michele's concerns

Random story:

The day before we hiked the glacier we hiked to the terminal face of another glacier, Fox. At one point you needed to cross a stream that went pretty steeply downhill. Michele decided to rest there for a while on a nice wide rock that had a view of everyone who passed by.

As Michele is sitting there some older folks pass by and have a difficult time with the rocks and water crossing as they are old and they don't move the way they used to. In other words they are old and creaky.

Michele sitting there is worried that they may fall down, break something, be swept away by the stream down more rocks, break their neck and die. She is so concerned that she almost yells, "Don't die old people!" She doesn't though. She manages to control herself, perhaps squeaking warnings that only she can hear. Can't you see her? Because I can and it is making me giggle. Don't worry the old people miraculously make it across the river.

Upon seeing me at the terminal face of Fox Glacier she tells me this story and now I tell the rest of the world.

They were probably sent there to die by their children cause they weren`t useful anymore.

Thanks to Michele`s squeaky warnings they found the strength to survive and break a thousand-year-old tradition.

That would have been funnier if Kristen had almost said it.
