Not My Most Manly Moment

While we were in Saint Lucia, Kellie signed me up for something called the Treetop Challenge: a little adventure that consists of 11 high wire elements, some as much as 65 feet above the forest floor.  While I have no problem diving hundreds of feet below the ocean surface in a nuclear powered submarine carrying multiple intercontinental ballistic missiles, walking on a wire strung between two trees in the canopy of a tropical rainforest scares the crap out of me.
Kellie executed all 11 elements with ease.  She has great balance, which she attributes to her low center of gravity (euphemism for voluptuous bootie and muscular thighs).  My center of gravity is somewhat higher (euphemism for big belly and fat head).  Consequently, I am somewhat less graceful when the situation calls for good balance.  The videos tell the story.
