Again thanks to everyone for your warm feedback.
A few things I should clear up, for the record:
Larry, I never wore Lyzz’s undies, that would be weird!
Those who alluded to seeing it before, correct, Alpinist #6 I think, maybe #8. Something like that.
And lastly, an epilog:
I ran into Lynn about two years after this little thingie was first printed. I was lowering off a route in The City of Rocks. I touched down and there was Lynn, arms akimbo, giving me that look. -Oh oh!
“So Roadie,” she said. “I want my underwear back.”
I kind of cowered.
She was hanging out with my old friend Ace and we climbed together for the next few days. On our last night Ace offered to buy dinner at that little bar in Almo, I offered to drive and off we went, Ace and I in the front, Lynn and Owen in the back of my van.
It’s odd but since that night the red Santa Claus boxers my mom sent me last Christmas have been MIA.
Odd. I like to think she’s using then for a head band, or maybe a pillowcase…
