A good night off. That is what I considered, tonight.
Off. Like a light switch in the down position.
Hey. Say a guy named James goes missing. He could be Jimmy Off-a.
Okay. Okay. Off.
But not at all like the spray, OFF.
Which could mean to drive back, or to force away. (Repel an attacker.)
Or it could mean to be repulsive. (Repelled by a bad smell.)
Or resist mixing with or be impervious to. (The water was repelled.)
Those are the basic three definitions offered by Webster, and Cambridge for repel.
So when you repel down a mountain, which is it?
I guess you repel your body away from the mountain surface as you descend.
I have done this before. It is not as easy as it looks.
However, descending, overall, seems to take much less effort than ascending. On mountains, and in life in general.
Ascend. To climb, to rise, to clamber, or scale. To conquer.
Conquer. Doesn’t that kind of sound like “Konk Her.”
She was repelling down the mountain, but near the very middle, she hit a tree branch. It Konk Her right in the head. Conquer.
Thankfully, she was wearing a helmet, which is a good thing, when you are moving up and down mountains, or riding a bike, playing professional football, or fighting in a war.
Truth be told, I am wearing a Helmut right now. I always put one on when I write. It sort of looks like a Viking Helmut. But no horns, because Viking Helmuts didn’t really have those horns. Like, the ivory type, not the kind you put on bicycles, or in cars. Honking horns.
Although, that might be kind of neat. To have a Helmut — a big iron Viking Helmut — with a couple of beeping horns attached. That way, whenever I think I am writing something funny, I could reach up, and toot a few times.
Instead of tooting the other way. I am not really a gassy tooter, but boy, oh boy, do I EVER know some.
That kind of tooting, generally repels people.
Turns them off.
And now, here we are back again at the beginning. I suppose I did not take the night off at all.
Night, like the opposite of day.
Not Knight, like the kind of Knights in castles, and the ones who fight Vikings…
Oh Holy Heck. It is happening again….
