More overheard at the climbing gym--

"In winter, the climbers return to the indoor walls like the swallows to Capistrano."

"He's got these little stubby fingers. That's the only reason they don't-boom!-just snap off when he does that."
"Yeah, he got captured by the mob this one time and they were gonna break his fingers, but he wouldn't tell them anything."
"You'll get no beta from me, Nunzio!"

"I'll be upstairs watching Lost. Call me if you need to go to the hospital."

"Neil's 5.8--"
"A Neil 5.8 is a 5.10."
"Whereas one of mine is really just a 5.9. See? It's easy."

"Shit! Gravity Works!"

"What you have there is beautiful specimen of a hematoma. Also, your nail's going to fall off in a couple of weeks now."

"I can't get my foot off the ground. What is with this?"
"Is it stuck?"
"To the carpet?"
"Stranger things have happened."

"You know, it's totally the shoes. I can't stick that in my 5.10s."
"What are those?"
"La Sportiva."
"You know, the 5.10s are supposed to be stickier."
"The map is not the territory. That's all I'm saying."

"Why am I sitting when I could be lying down now?"

"Why do we do this again?"
"It's fun."
"No, that's not it."
"For the endorphins?"
"For the shoulders."

Also, hey. Did you know I'm now legally married?
