“I’d like to climb a mountain please”, I say confidently.
“Yes Sir, and which one would that be?” says the lady behind the desk.
“The big one over there”, I say, pointing to a looming monstrosity in the distance, half obscured by cloud.
“Fine”, she says, tapping away at her computer, “Have you ever climbed a mountain before?”
Hmmm, not that I can remember.
