When I was a little stuffed monkey, my mommy didn’t like it when I climbed trees. One time I climbed a tree and I fell out of it and she said, “No more climbing trees for you, mister. You’re gonna hurt yourself!” So from then on I stayed out of trees. My mommy also didn’t let me use stuffed serrated knives to cut stuffed bananas. That’s okay, though, because I’m really afraid of knives.
The folks at The SARF are helping me overcome my fear of climbing. They call it submersion therapy or something like that. I can’t remember the word because I’m feeling really distracted right now. I feel really brave, though!
