Yesterday I noticed that a hooligan had thrown a beach towel on my house roof. My ladder is too short to reach the roof, so I had to come up with a more daring way to rescue the towel.
I decided to be like Spiderman by climbing out the dormer window onto a narrow and steep patch of roof, and then shimmy around the edge of the dormer to grab the towel. My wife grabbed my arm on the way back, making it easier to get through the window - return trips always seem to be harder when doing death-defying stunts.
The hooligan is still at large. Developing story ...
This maneuver was done with no safety ropes or nets. Stupid, I know.
