That is one of the funnyest, most relevant, and ultimately sobering piece of
prose I have heard in a while, I laughed out loud until I thought about it for
a few more seconds!
As we age, memory lapses seem to be a reality for many of us, and certainly
gives impetus toward establishing a routine for tower work in order to not
forget something critical. I'm thinking a laminated checklist of all safety
gear and preps at the tower base, at least then the worst that occurs at height
should be a forgotten tool.
