My younger son was at a party. The party got a little out of control and the cops were called. My son was not old enough to be drinking which in no way affected his beverage intake. He already had one underage drinking charge to his name so he felt compelled to hide from the cops. It was summer, I took my kids to all the Star Trek movies and so like Kirk, he knew about all the dimensions. The cops were looking only in two dimensions and so my son climbed a tree and eluded capture.

Isn't he clever? Do you wonder why I have gray hair?

Little shit but a clever one don't you think?

Thank goodness girls aren't that inventive  ;D

I never climbed a tree to evade the cops.

Does that make me a little goody two shoes?

How do we know you didn't live in a desert with no trees to climb?

Did she think you had 'drop bear' somewhere in your ancestry?

We used to jump off the boathouse roof. It would have been more fun if the boathouse were on the water, but it was just a place to store Dad's fishing boat behind the garage. Have you ever jumped onto a bunch of acorns in your bare feet? You only do it once. Then you know to wear your shoes and even that is a bit risky in the fall.

I used to both climb trees and jump off the roof. How I made it through childhood without any broken bones is a mystery.

Your question is also mysterious. Where did it go?

MIA ?  Do we mount a search for it, or just write it off.

Could she be suffering from Kleptomania?

I broke my arm as a kid, playing football.  :P

Aussie Rules football, presumably?  Where the ball largely seems to be an excuse for beating the crap out of the other man at the least excuse.

I have two abiding images of your version in my mind.  One is a girl grabbing another girl's ponytail from behind and yanking her head sideways so hard it nearly came off.  The other is of a player man running up the front of his opponent and then jumping over his head, a bit like free-running with people instead of buildings.
