Climbing and underpants
When I was young, I was best behaved when tethered, possibly drugged. I had a propensity for climbing and was once found, barely off my mother’s teet, sitting on the roof of the house.

My parents, having likely grown bored with pulling me out of trees, decided to go out for a romantic meal. They gave the babysitter instructions: only call the restaurant if our wickle baby Snark is bleeding heavily or heavily dead.

And so, the babysitter and I set off for a local park. In the amount of time it took the babysitter to blink, I was up a telegraph pole. Unaccustomed to this method of climbing, I slipped and let go…

…but was saved when the elastic band on my Strawberry Shortcake underpants caught one of the gaffs and left me dangling by my undercarriage about 15 feet off the ground. I was hanging upside-down by my pink underwear.

The babysitter, remembering what my parents had told her, left me there to formulate a plan. That plan came in the form of emergency services.

I had to have a firefighter cut me out of my underpants and rescue me like a cat.

No amount of money and unlimited time on the telephone with her boyfriend could get that babysitter to come back.

Having two small children, I'm glad we live in a house without an upstairs.

When I were a nipper, me and my brother used to climb outside the house, from my bedroom to his, by inching along a 4" window sill, about 30 feet over a concrete patio.

I was probably 3 or 4 at the time, a fact I know becuase we moved from that house when I was 5.
