What did you do this weekend? I stayed at home, huddled in a corner, wrapped in a blanket, waiting for the world to end, went to our local amusement park, Lagoon, to watch my granddaughter in a dance competition.
Then it was off to ride the rides. In all fairness, I just went this time as a spectator. I know, you are floored with an announcement that I, the ever thrill seeker of life, didn't go on any rides. It's true. A moment of silence.........
In my defense, last Fall I did ride this roller coaster. Watch it and weep. (or throw up). Bwaahaha.
It truly reflects its name of Wicked. My above pictured granddaughter, L.O.V.E.S this ride. She is 8 people. The first time she rode it she was barely over 6. She has been on this ride 8 times. She gets her love of roller coasters from her mom, who, like my other 3 kids, get it from me. :)
I have to admit. I felt my age this weekend. And it sucked. I have a few things I would like to tell the makers/owners of amusement parks.
There are not enough. Sometimes I had to make do with the cement enclosures the trees were in. They are at most 2 inches wide. My butt is feeling the effects of sitting on such butthurting fine seating.
BOTTLES OF WATER. $2.50
Yes, police officer. I was ripped off while at the park. What? You don't find $2.50 a bottle, when you can buy a case of them on a good day for $3.99, a total ripoff? Alrighty then.
SLOWEST WORKERS EVER IN CONCESSION STANDS
Need I say more.
CUTEST GRANDKIDS EVER
But then, I'm prejudice. I'll go as a spectator anytime just to watch them.
