The word scramble has many definitions, the most common probably being a method for cooking eggs. I like scrambled eggs if they are well done but I’ve never been a runny egg fan. A scramble can also be a disordered mixture of things. We scramble the letters of the alphabet for different word games. When you dump out a box of puzzle pieces, they are typically scrambled. The word can mean to struggle eagerly or unceremoniously for possession of something. When the piñata at my Mom’s 90th birthday party finally spewed out it’s candy, there was a mad scramble for all things Reese’s.
My recent experience with scrambling was to make my way quickly or awkwardly up a steep slope and over rough ground by using my hands as well as my feet. The key word in my scrambling technique was “awkward”. There wasn’t anything quick about it. Because I like to do things just a few steps beyond normal, I also used my knees in my scramble, not something I’d recommend doing unless you’re wearing knee pads!
Later this week, I’ll share Friday’s insane adventure. It was definitely outside my comfort zone but I’m really glad that I gave it a try.
