Went watching one of our closest friends do a charity sky dive this morning, and got really freaked out when her parachute didn't open properly, and had to be cut away. The reserve worked, and she's fine, but those few seconds, watching with her partner and kids, as her parachute was cast aside will stay with me a long time.
Then had a barbecue and some champagne back at ours to celebrate and chill, and missed most of the game, which seemed less important somehow.
That will get your heart pumping.
It's funny - my son asked me this weekend if I'd ever like to go sky diving. I told him I have a tough enough time on solid ground.
On other note, on the way to drop off my son at his summer job, we were talking about the upcoming week. I was telling him how much stuff I have going on and he said he had a busy week too.
I was kinda incredulous. I said, "You have your park job, football practice in the afternoon, and then field trips to a water park and go-kart racing at the end of the week."
He said, "I know. That's a lot of stuff to do."
I tried not to laugh.
