CLIMBING 101- Getaway Weekend Points
aka The Little Lady Hates Calcium Buildup!

If you're in a relationship, or about to be this is for you. Yes, Burchey, you!
Pay attention, this tutorial has lots of carryover into other aspects of life.

I'm gonna type this real slow so all you retards can understand it.
I'm speaking with the voice of experience gained over many years.
We all need points toward something spendy or that long weekend with the guys
sending test pieces like Bastille Crack or Double Cross, right?

This is TOTALLY GUARANTEED! <Disclaimer: Guarantee not valid if you have soft water>

Step 1.

(OK, so you need to figure out how to get all the water out first)

Step 2. The Tool
This could be the hard part. You need a tool. No, not that type.
From 1/2" to 3/4" by 1/8" thick. As always, length is important too.
Too short and you'll be hatin' life. Too long and, well, most of us don't
have that problem. Oh, the wood is important - not too hard and definitely
not too soft. Mahogany is just right, as long as it is FSC certified.

Step 3. It's all in the wrist
Yes, a workman doesn't blame his tool so hone yer motion.

Step 4. Go big or stay home!
Don't forget those hard to get to areas! Hey, relationships are hard and
so is calcium!

Step 5. Buff it or lose it.
Get the 3M pad from the kitchen and really make 'er shine! Remember:
If yer sh!tter is shinin' so are you!

OK, that about does it. I hope I didn't type too fast. Oh, and check those
gloves for holes before you get into it. And don't put the sponge back
in the kitchen sink.

Now you can order that Fish gear with her approval!

oooooooh.... I sent both of those test pieces. And I didn't clip that first bolt on Double Cross. How's that for old Skool?

Priceless Reilly! I'm crackin up here. Shoulda just called this thread relationship tips to help u send ur über proj.

This is definitely on topic.

My move however is a little different.

First a quick clean of the counters, mirror & bathroom floor (only takes about 5-10min). Then spray cleaner into the bowl & tub(2-4min) & tell the wife (this is key) that it needs to soak for awhile because you want to make sure its real clean for her bubble bath later. Then I go climbing(for it to properly soak, usually takes about 4-7 pitches or 20-30 moderate boulder problems). When I return I spray more cleaner & the sh#t comes right off- no pun intended! The trick for me is to do this every 2 weeks so I don't need to use a stick or too much elbow grease. That said, to each his own & as Reilly pointed out- its all about technique!

Don't remember a bolt on double cross tho?

I was worn out before Step 1. But I was motivated to crawl under the sink and put that piece of electrical tape where the rat chewed through to the wire to the garburator, just like my wife has been asking me to do ever since I reported it to her when we were changing the kitchen faucet a few weeks ago. That should cover for the next trip.

I don't need no stinking approval to buy sh!t.

Unless, of course, it is more than $2.00.

LOL, Reilly.
