king of the mountain
have you ever climbed a mountain? you probably, definitely should. i would go with you.
but first maybe we should practice climbing. like with a steep hill then a small baby mountain. and work our way up. (pun INTENDED! HAHAH!)
i have been thinking about climbing a mountain lately. it's on my list of things to do.
oddly enough, it's kind of hard to find someone to climb a mountain with you. they always seem to be so busy, or the timing is just bad.
and i understand. it's not like,
"will you go to prom with me?"
everyone needs a prom date. eventually someone will go to prom with you.
or, "will you go out to dinner with me tonight?"
people really love to eat. that's easy.
or even, "will you give me a ride to the airport?"
true friends do things like that.
but even if you are the truest true friend climbing a mountain with someone is a really big commitment.
you love me, right?
what is your first instinct when i say
"would you like to climb a mountain with me this weekend?"
i don't want to throw this in your face or anything, but i would totally do it for you.

it is a weird thing when a kid who used to ask you to wipe her butt suddenly doesn't want you to see her changing her shirt.
today cowgirl and i made some pretty important decisions. these are the things we decided.
1. we would rather eat octopus snot with eyeballs and livers in it than fall from a cliff onto sharp spears.
2. we would rather be able to fly than be able to see the future OR move things with our minds.
3. we would rather wake up tomorrow covered entirely in feathers we had sprouted than wake up tomorrow with bright blue skin.
4. we would rather live in an awesome giant redwood treehouse than a huge house on the beach.
turns out we have really similar values.

you should definitely take a moment to lay in the moonlight of your friends' midnight lawn after hugging them goodbye in the indian summer darkness. they will be inside in the lamplight and warm, but it is better outside on the cool damp grass listening to the trees and stars.
try not to think about how embarrassing it could be for one second if they walked out and found you.
just concentrate on the fact that it's still summer and warm and cool and grassy and starry and reminds you of being 16
and wearing long hippy skirts and taking acid on the back lawn.
and feeling so excited about being a part of the wondrous world revealing itself to you.
