Everyday Dirtbag Entry #66.

I headed to Smith Rock to climb yesterday, knowing my only-friend-in-the-entire-world-Jeff was there with Mike Holmes.  I planned on climbing with them, then convincing someone to stay and camp with me either at Smith or the Sisters Boulders.  Then more climbing Sunday.  Only everyone was planning on going home Saturday night.  So I had to be persuasive.

My most manipulative tools of persuasion:

1. My instant coffee stash (I’m very willing to share).

2. My super-positive talking-while-belaying skills.

3. My personal attractiveness.

4. A free tarp.

5. Three avocados (almost ripe).

Somehow – although we laughed and climbed all day Saturday – I failed to land a climbing partner for Sunday.  I might need to reevaluate my social skills.
