This week I went to an amusement park with the girls. Brian had meetings to attend, so I was going it alone. While the girls rode most of the rides themselves, I had lots of time to be contemplative.
First, I learned that I lose all control of my mouth, specifically my vocal editing skills I still cuss like a sailor when I'm on rides.
Second, I learned that some rides take me back to where I was teeny or even thirty years ago. The rocking pirate ship? I feel like I'm 13 again riding it with my aunt Kay.
Third, I learned that regardless of how young the rides make me feel, the park--specifically the park patrons--make me feel old. The kids running around being cool are so young! The good news (?) is that things like jams and Flock Of Seagulls hair is back. Yay.
And finally, I learned that if you wear a cool shirt from Big Foot Creative (http://www.bigfootcreative.net) you'll not only stay cool on the hottest day of the summer so far, but you'll meet a lot of nice people who tell you they like your shirt. They might even put their fingers on their heads and reenact the Tatonka scene from "Dances With Wolves."
Even if Bigfoot Creative hadn't given me this shirt, I would've bought it because it's not only fun, but it's comfortable, cool and smooth. Check them out! They have tons of fun designs.
