So I'm Not So Young Anymore...

Well, officially I can't just ride whatever I want anymore at the theme parks. When does this happen. Remember when your mom would say "I can't do those rides" and you'd tell her she was lame because surely she was just afraid and didn't get sick? I got sick. At Cedar Point. On this flippin ride. It was fun the first few rounds. Then I got nauseus. I had ridden several rides by then, it was the second to last ride. I rode the Magnum, Millenium, (which, I never thought the damn first drop was going to end!) Wildcat.

They made me ride the Power Tower. Um that one I was afraid of. I couldn't watch them go up and down. When we got to the top Heather wanted me to "look at the pretty lights" then she offered to hold my hand. I was pretty scared. Heck yea I held her hand, so what? I screamed so long and hard, I had to take a breath and scream again! That was no joke.

Then I got nauseus on that stupid Max Air. And we had 5 minutes to get in line for the Raptor. I thought it would shock the sick out of me. After the first flip, I knew it was bad news. Since the entire ride is filmed, I hid inside my hoodie. I wasn't going to be filmed yacking. As soon as I got off the ride, I headed right to the pisser, and tossed my McDonald's snack wrap. It was like having the spins when you drink too much. I luckily fell asleep on the way home and it went away.

We went into a couple of haunted attractions. One being corn stalkers. Which was fun because it was lined with corn stalks, and there were monsters covered in corn stalks so they could scare you pretty good, they blended into the walls. Muh ah ah ah....

Saturday of course I saw my sweetie. Who even got me a very sweet card, and gift! I didn't expect that at all he's pretty cute! We went out for food and drinks, and had a fabulous time. He ate the hottest wings known to man. (to me!) Boys are nuts that way!

And, yesterday we saw Religulous which you shouldn't see if you believe things like, Noah carted two of each animal onto an arc and saved the animal population, or Jesus was an immaculate conception. It might make you mad, because it asks people how these things occurred, and the answer is just you have to have faith. Whatever floats your boat. It was a good movie though. We both loved it, because it questions religion. You should see it if you have an open mind. It was very funny, and eye opening. There is a guy in this movie who thinks he is Jesus reincarnated. He's Latin, and lives in Miami. The trailer gives you an idea of the wonderfulness of the movie.

I can't remember the last time I went to a movie, where people clapped at the end.....Hmm. There are others like me.

I haven't been to Cedar Point since right before they built Millennium. That was when Magnum and Raptor were the biggest rides. I don't think I could handle the Maxair. And there's no freakin' way I'd ride Power Tower!

But but but but but! What about Dragster? You didn't ride Dragster? I love rides, but for the past 15 years, since I turned 30, I haven't been able to ride spinny ones anymore. Give me fast and furious, but spin me around and you're looking to get puked on.

Cedar Point is the Best! I envy you!

it was fun but im glad i lived. I thought id die on the power tower.

there was too long a line for the dragster. i love that one though, we rode the raptor instead, its longer ride, and shorter line.

I know exactly what you mean - it happens sometime after the age of 28. I went to an amusement park about 3 years ago and went on the gravitron (the one where it spins around and you stick to the sides while the bottom drops out. O.M.G. did I hurl right after. A few years ago I would have been good to go, but not so much anymore! Well atleast you fell asleep - that really does always help.
