Hope your knee isn't too bad and your out on the slopes again soon - with new back-up lighter.
I'd have gone with the fight story, maybe changed the shark for a stag though.
Fixed my old lighter now, although I don't think I'd trust on the hill again though. Relegated to fire starting duties at home I think. The knee actually seemed okayish by the time I got home and all of yesterday, twinging a bit today though.
I did think about a story involving a fight with a Stag, but then they might have asked where the Stag was, at which point the game would be up. A shark was far more believable as I could just say it swam away.

I didn't consider that. I feel better now, contempt has to be far better than condescension.

Be a total snob and state that you can't be bothered with summiting a munro no more. Meeting people on a track is a great chance to adopt any role. Tourist, insect-collector, poet...
I am so liking your style!
