Fearless

The wife and I took the family to an amusement park yesterday. It was a lot of fun and I think that my wife got it right when she said she hadn't had that much fun since she was little and got to experience much of the same rides the first time. It was a lot of fun, I will admit. There is something about being whipped around until you are dizzy that is satisfying and unnerving at the same time. Before I go any further, I am a roller coaster junkie. I love them, the faster the better. I am proud to say that my seven year old is one as well. She loved being plummeted toward the earth with several G's of force trying to force her from the seat only to be whipped skyward again at the last second, laughing the whole time.

It reminded me a little of writing. You never know where the action will take you and you hope that every failsafe works and you don't go crashing into the ground. At least my writing is like that, I don't know about you. All I know is that I enjoy the ride.

I would post a picture that the park took of my wife and daughter at the bottom of the first big drop, but they would both kill me, so next time you come over for a beer remind me and I will be happy to show you.

Sweet : )

I'm boring at amusement parks. I like the merry go round!

Jamie Eyberg said...

Nat, are you talking the one that flips you upside down and goes round at 90 mph?

Aaron Polson said...

C'mon, you know we all want to see the picture. I won't tell. ;)

Jamie Eyberg said...

Aaron, I've got your email. ;)

If I go on anything too spinny or too fast I am required by law to wear a 'projectile vomiter' sticker.

Jamie Eyberg said...

Cate, I didn't even know they made those. Huh, I see a future marketing campaign.

I love those amusement park rides. The faster the better, the more hanging upside down the better.

Jamie Eyberg said...

Danielle, exactly!

I'm a coaster junkie too-- my dad and I would go crazy with them while my mom and little brother sort of lingered behind. (But when we do get her on them, you'd better believe we buy that picture!)

I love rollercoasters too, but most other rides make me motion sick these days. I've turned into an old fogie.

Jamie Eyberg said...

Katey, my parents and siblings can't hack them, but my wife really digs them.

K.C., there are a couple of rides I can't bring myself to try. they don't even look like fun (I'm looking at you silly silo.)
