I've turned into a monkey

 
LiMarie
Yep, a monkey. (I'm thinking a cute chimp)

Meaning I am constantly climbing, inverting, swinging from, u name it on absolutely anything I can get my monkey hands on. It's like I now have this constant itch which I need to scratch by all types of monkey business imaginable. I'm talking lamp posts, trees, playgrounds, pull up bars at the gym or park, monkey bars, Olympic Rings, ropes, silks, trapezes - the works! I'm constantly assessing the climb ability of everything around me and if it looks possible, I need to go there. I actually feel like an addict in desperate need of my next fix and if I can't get it, I can even get a bit antsy and agitated. This even makes me think twice about wearing dresses when going out or wearing some shorts underneath just in case the itch strikes and I need to climb!

Fellow monkeys out there?

Lol, I know that feeling! I'm always catching myself sizing things up for climbability too, only polers would understand, I'm convinced other people think I'm bonkers!

When I take my son to the park it's all I can do to not invert on "fire pole". The other moms around here don't appreciate it. Sometimes we go to the park when I know there won't be many other people there for just this reason. Isn't if funny how everything has potential once you start pole?

Yes...monkeys!  And Silver Sylph I know what you mean about "sizing things up!"  My neighborhood is full of gay bars...There's a club on my block and I'm always looking at these shiny gold poles that hold up the awning...ignoring the fabulously dressed people waiting to get in!

I haven't turned into a monkey yet, but I can see how it would happen.  Sounds like pole Parkour.
