“Not fair! He’s younger than me but I can’t go on!”

“I will, too. Not my fault you’re short and I’m not!”

“Shut up, Aidan!”

Comes off ride, crying…

“You big baby.”

…two years later…

“I’m not going on any ride that goes upside down!”

“You’re such a chicken.”

“Hope you’re tall enough!”

“Shut up!”

“Boys! Enough! Ready to go on the Rockin’ Roller Coaster? It’ll be so cool. The whole ride is in the dark!”

“Does it go upside down, Dad?”

“Nah. Don’t worry about it.”

Iain snickers…

“That was the coolest ride, ever!”

“Even though it went upside-down?”

    • Dear Rochelle,

      None of us were honest and when the guy behind us said ‘yeah yeah, it goes upside’ down we wanted to smack him. However, we convinced him that in the dark would be no big whup… lol…

      Shalom and lotsa topsy-turvy love,

  1. This makes me laugh.
    Great Yarmouth has a Pleasure Beach with all the usual fairground rides. I remember one visit long before we moved here. The ride comprised a circle of ‘cars’ that spun around an arc and in doing so the cars would be upside down. The youngest sat in the car with me. She must have been 4 or 5 yrs old.
    So the car goes upside down. She squealed in delight. “Mum, the ground’s where the sky should be.” She has remained a lover of white-knuckle rides ever since!

  2. I used to love rollercoasters. It’s been over 20 years since I’ve been on one. I don’t have much desire to ride on these days. That Strat in the photo is cool and bigger than my friend Jimmy’s 16-foot long exact replica of a Strat he built and has in his shop. You can see Jimmy’s Strat at https://wp.me/p1yQyy-462.

  3. Oh myyyy, I can NOT go on those rides – no voice left if I do, plus my heart isn’t getting any younger. My daughter and husband took their fearless 6 year old on a roller coaster, and the photo that the attraction took showed a smiling kid and a HORRIFIED, scared-as-s*i* dad. πŸ™‚

  4. I read this in horror as I imagined ANYONE tricking me onto a rollercoaster that then went upside down … Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope. My body cannot handle it. Nope!
    Funny skit, my friend, and the bickering sounded very very realistic … so I’m thinking… yeah … that happened …
    And for the record, if we EVER go to an amusement park together. You go on the rides. I hold the purses and take the photos from the stable ground below. The end … πŸ˜‰

  5. When I was a kid, I loved amusement park rides. Then I grew up and lost my taste for them. I loved the bickering between the boys, so true-to-life.

    And, by the way, I’m enjoying watching your hair grow πŸ™‚
