If you aren't reading this from the bottom of a crevasse, it's probably because you learned glacier safety so well at VOC Glacier School. Wouldn't it be great to give back?  Now is your chance!

V. Ms. Manners

Dear Miss Manners

Last week I went up to a VOC hut and spent the night with 20 other  members. I had the good fortune of sleeping between two pretty attractive VOCers. Does this mean I can tell my all my friends I slept with two hotties at the same time?

Yours
Con Fused


Dear Con Fused,

Good question. Yes, it does - but why stop at two?  As the VOC is obviously the most attractive club in the world, you really slept with 20 hotties. Unless of course there's more to the story involving you and the two...

Yours Truly,

Miss Manners
