Rubes Cartoons - Tales from a Twisted Mind
Thrilled to Death
Nov 07, 2010
Never been a big fan of roller coasters. No sir, not one bit. Tried many times but roller coasters are just not for me, or to be more accurate, my stomach. When I was a kid I was able to tolerate the Matterhorn ride at Disneyland but for some reason after I passed my teens I lost all interest. Oh, I tried to get into it to show my kids I could handle it. Several years ago my family went to Six Flags Magic Mountain and after what seemed like an eternity of dips and bumps and stomach-churning turns I stumbled off the ride and staggered around for the next 45 minutes in a nauseous daze. I decided that was it and I would never subject myself to such a nightmarish experience ever again. How wrong I was. Now each day I have the pleasure of experiencing all the thrills that come with my youngest son driving to school with me as the passenger/instructor. It’s a good thing I eat breakfast after I get home.
