|"We're Going on What Ride?|
The videos are ready! I'm starting to lose track of time but if I remember correctly, we all attended the Toronto Exhibition on Monday night. "We all" included Dr. Spo and his Significant Other, Someone; Pat (our host) and yours truly.
As you can hear from one of the videos, Dr. Spo said it's been over forty years since he attended a carnival, which is essentially what the Toronto Exhibition is. A carnival on steroids.
It's been over fifty years since I've attended one of these carnivals.
I wanted to go on the ferris wheel but was vetoed down. However we all did agree to go on a ride called "The Scrambler." Pat bought the tickets and we were ready for to ride. Someone asked "Now are we all going to scream like little girls?" Of course we said "Oh no!"
We were jacked up, ready to ride! After some discussion we all agreed we would try "The Scambler ride first. Pat got the tickets and we were ready to ride! However, we hit a snag. The woman running the ride told us they were doing maintenance to the ride and it wouldn't be ready until 9:00 PM. We were jacked up and couldn't wait (two hours) so we decided to go on the roller coaster.
But we had a backup plan. The roller coaster. Now granted, this wasn't one of those killer roller coasters that turned your hair white with fright. This was one of those portable carnival roller coasters. "No problem." At least that's what we thought.
