Smiling before the ride!

When Tegshee visited us a couple weeks ago, we went to Valley Fair. It was my third time there. Paul and I are not fans of the extreme rides. We just can't stand them, even just the thought of them! We feel sick just watching those rides. But when we went there with Tegshee and Orgil, they really put a lot of pressure on me to go with them on the power tower. I gave in. I joined them. I consoled myself by thinking that I would be fine after the ride like all other riders. And Orgil promised me that it's fun. We chose the free fall one. As the ride slowly went up, I started screaming while shutting my eyes. I have a fear of height. I couldn't bear looking down. As the ride shoots down, free fall, I felt like I was completely bodiless. I basically felt like I was going to die. I screamed too hard that I lost my golden voice after the ride. If I would do it again? Uh, uh... you won't see me up there ever again. In fairness, it was a good bonding time for me and my two big kids.
