We’re going uphill
Me: We’ve only got 2ooo’ to go…
Sherpa: 2000′, I thought we had several miles to go?
Me: No, I mean we have only 2000′ of elevation to go up, not distance.
Sherpa: F you.
Me: OK now we only have 1950′ to go.
Sherpa: I’m going to throw you off a cliff, if you don’ t stop that.
Me: The next cliff is another 300′.
Sherpa: I mean it, stop it, before I kill you!
Me: Sorry, we’ve got about 2 hrs.
Me: (ten minutes later) OK, we only have 1900′ to go.
Sherpa: that’s it, you’re dead!
