Ever since I wrote about tearing photos of our climbing avatars out of Climbing magazine and posting them on our refrigerator, people have been asking: Did you really do that?
Of course I did. I’m a journalist, not a novelist. I don’t make things up.
So now you have the photo proof, left. That’s the Fields family fridge. I have made one addition since I wrote the story — I added “+ snacks” to my avatar below my name (when I was hungry) and “suffering” to my husband’s.
I like snacks.
Truth is always stranger than fiction. And more entertaining.
And speaking of entertaining, Mark Smiley caught wind of my column and dropped me a line. He and Janelle are committed to their 50 Classic Climbs project, but he confessed that like me, Janelle likes climbing in a tank top, and like my husband, he likes alpine sufferfests.
I’m starting to think we girls are just a little smarter than the boys.
