Grown-ups are too busy to climb trees, right?
You spend two months driving the street in front of your house.
You sleep for thirty years without opening your eyes.
For five months straight you flip through magazines while sitting on a toilet.
You spend six days clipping your nails.
Fifteen months looking for lost items.
Eighteen months waiting in line.
Two years of boredom: staring out a bus window, sitting in an airport terminal.
One marathon two-hundred-day shower.
Six weeks waiting for a green light.
Three months doing laundry.
Fifty-one days deciding what to wear.
Nine days pretending you know what is being talked about.
Two weeks counting money.
Eighteen days staring into the refrigerator.
Six months watching commercials.
Four weeks sitting in thought, wondering if there is something better you could be doing with your time.
Three-quarters of British kids spend less time outdoors than prisoners.
Half of us spend 5 hours a DAY on our phones.
A quarter of us do less than 30 minutes exercise a WEEK.
And that is why I’m spending ten minutes climbing this tree.
