Who would crawl out of their bed at 7am on a Sunday morning? That person is in serious need of a tranquilizer!
Yes, I am that deranged. *yawn*
We began our hike for what seemed like hours and I was panting already.
Me: “Are we halfway yet??”
Sim: “Huh? From that station over there, *points at a distance*
is where all the fellow hikers are supposed to start”
So yeah. We went ahead and holymotherearth, it was freakishly steep!
Not to mention the amount of moss and webs that got stuck in inimaginable parts of my hair and clothes. I was drenched in my own perspiration from head to toe and it was practically trickling down my forehead! Sweating profusely, all I wanted then, was my bed!
Look at this! I’m not the only one exhausted!
I was climbing on all fours when the angle reached 60degrees steep. The irregular pathway did not help – AT ALL. I was desperately trying to catch my breath and this was what happened:
Sim: “Are you tired yet Jess?”
Jess: “*shoots a sinister glare at Sim* oh… no. I’m perfectly fine. So very fine”
Sim: “Isn’t this the best day of your life? *grins sarcastically*”
Jess: “Well Sim, thank you SO MUCH for making my day even better. *rolls eyes* Let’s climb Mt. Everest tomorrow.”
When we reached the peak, I was indeed thankful. So very thankful in fact. Hey. I did not collapse to the ground like I had envisioned myself to. Oh well, I’m proud of myself! Not bad for one who had her last actual hiking experience 3years ago in a Jamboree.
And now… should I go and have some McD big breakfast set, since I never get to wake up in time for it?
No. for that would defeat the purpose of this morning’s torturous misery!!!
