Hands up who hasn’t said something while climbing with friends and received a lightening fast response designed with ruthless efficiency to highlight the silliness of your comment and score a cheap laugh at your expense… Yeah, I thought as much. This cartoon reminded me of a phrase in our house when I was growing up. Dialogos para besugos (Spanish mother), which translates as ‘dialogues for breams’ (as in the fish) and refers to the kind of nonsensical, cross-purpose, half-witted conversations that seem to make up so much of my time climbing.
