Twisting Turning Round and Round!
This was one of the highlights of my vacation. I did one of these bungee rides in Daytona a couple years ago..the kid that did it with me pissed himself. It was a great rush. So to see it in Ocean City this year, I was syked to go again. This time hubby manned up and did the bungee rocket with me. But this time...we went at night. There is nothing like being shot up in the air by a bungee going a gazillion miles an hour, in the pitch black of night. You never know which way you are going....but one thing remains constant....the words "Oh Shit!" repetitively pour from your quivering lips! When the big ole hamster ball finally stops going towards the stars.. you flip around to see the little ants we call people staring up at you in awe and for a second you seem suspended until the little ants become larger as you plummet face forward towards a cold black asphalt surface. The smells of popcorn and cotton candy make you a little queasy and the sounds of terror coming from your mother watching below with your two year old in tow are enough to make you crap yourself. But ALAS, the fun is shortly over and your adrenaline is racing through your veins..then you hear the attendent say "wanna go again half price?" HELL YEAH LET'S GO!!...but to my dismay, hubby lost his balls somewhere between heaven and earth! He left the ride crying that his 28 year OLD heart just couldn't take it! Geesh...!
