Three boys climbing rock wall


My mama would have snatched me bal'headed if I'd tried a stunt like this.

You ARE bal-headed. And not because I snatched you that way. But you're right- I would have. After I figured out how to get to you.

True. You could snatch my eyebrows off, I guess.

All I can ever think of when I see rock climbers and the like is that I don't have the upper body strength to hold up my own backside. And it seems all kinds of impossible when you have your fingers and toes just a few centimeters onto a ledge while said backside sticks considerably farther out the other direction.

I never thought of it quite that way, but I completely agree.
