Life List Day 208 - Ride Chaos

Once a year when I'm visiting friends in San Diego, we go to Belmont Park and ride the rollercoaster - one of the oldest wooden rollercoasters in California.

Today, we added a new ride to our list: Chaos.

I'm pretty fearless about rides and would normally not have thought of this for my life list, except as I get older I'm more squeamish about the ones that hang me upside-down a lot. I had to talk myself into it.

I'm so glad I did.

Rides make some people scream; they make me laugh: a crazy, giggly, wild, hysterical laugh that comes from nothing but that luscious mix of terror and delight at being tipped and swirled and spun within an inch of your life.

That would have made a very entertaining video! I used to love rides (then in a car accident years ago I rolled my car over a 200 foot cliff in the Canadian Rockies), and can have some fun on them, I prefer the more interactive rides.

Hi Jill;

I had an interesting meme left at my door (perhaps as a lost kitten that lives next door) and have chosen you as one of the promising recipients of the meme.

Come and have a look (it is at Creation on the Blade)…I think you could work it and it is well suited to you…
