At work, I've switched from programming in a language I know well to another, more difficult language. Today I scaled a wall. In Ninja Warrior terms, I hit the buzzer with seconds to go.
Metaphorically, I spent today trying to scale the Warped Wall.
See the guy hanging on to the top of the wall under the 449? That was me at 6 pm. I'd spent the day taking a run, leaping, slipping. I'd get a little closer each try, but I never ever made it, all day, until about 6 in the evening.
One more try. I said, "This won't work." And then it did! "Shashido!" (I believe this is Japanese for "Made it!" I've picked up a little Japanese since Ninja Warrior is on 24/7 during the Birthday month.)
And I DANCED. I cackled! I emailed Friend #3 and told her I am a god. I danced some more. I called Gary, drunk with power.
Awesome. The rest of the course will be so much easier now that I'm past this obstacle.
