Barnaby showed me that he can climb up a tree. Unfortunately, he has not yet learned how to climb down a tree.
He balanced precariously on the thin branches and cried.
I suggested that he jump onto my back but he didn’t seem keen to land on a furry trampoline so I had to alert the tall person.
Tall person came and reached up and rescued our intrepid “traceur”.
Tall person said that Barnaby must improve his Parkour skills – a physical discipline which focuses on efficient movement around obstacles. Developed in France by David Belle, the main purpose of the discipline is to teach participants how to move through their environment by vaulting, rolling, running, climbing, and jumping. Parkour practitioners are known as “traceurs”.
Hmm, Barnaby’s Parkour skills seem to be okay when my food bowl is being filled!
