Alright, it is time for another true confession. I have never been on this ride. There, I said it. I just don't see the attraction. Now. Yes, it is cute. But I am not the type of person who will knowingly (in most cases) go on a ride that could possibly make me sick. Now. And, there has never been enough pressure, peer or otherwise, placed on me to ride it.
Once upon a time, when I was younger and somewhat more bold than I am now, I would ride something that would spin me both clockwise and counter-clockwise concurrently. There was once a music themed park where I live that was called Opryland U.S.A. and in it was a Mad Tea Party type ride called the Little Deuce Coupe. Like I said, it was a music themed park. Many times my friends and I would stumble off that ride dizzy, disoriented and on some occasions rather sick. It was fun...at the time.
But now is not then. Thankfully, I have lived to grow older and hopefully a little wiser. Now I am content to watch others try to out-do each other in this ritualistic test of intestinal fortitude, knowing that one day, they too will be where I am at; on the outside looking in, with the same slight knowing smile on their face.
And now, you can look in too.
