Flashback Friday - Ride of Death

Wow, my scrapbook sucks! Yes, I took this picture from my phone of my scrapbook. First I just noticed that I actually scribbled something out. Why I just didn't throw the paper away and use a new fresh sheet is beyond me. But, please notice the caption, "Waiting for my death". That phrase was no joke. I almost died. Of embarrassment.

I was just tall enough to be in my own car. I didn't have to ride double with my parents. I was so excited. Now, these are the silly little cars at Disneyland that ride ON A TRACK. No matter how you steer, you will still end up going in the right place. Well, no one told me this. I was eight - and apparently not that smart.

As I got in the car, I realized that I couldn't push the gas peddle in and see over the top of the car at the same time. I panicked. My car inched forward as I stretched my leg as far as it could go, but pretty much I wasn't moving. All of a sudden, I heard someone yelling. I turned around and OMG, there was a line of cars, full of people all waiting for me to move. I swear I remember one guy yelling, MOVE!! PUSH THE PEDDLE!!! I think I might have started crying. Because all i remember was that I practically laid down in the car just so I could push the gas all the way in. I even remember going past one of the disneyland workers and almost yelled out to him, "help me!" But I was too embarrassed.

I was seriously traumatized from this experience. And whenever I go to an amusement park and see one of these car rides, a flood of memories return to me and I relive the most horrific day of my life.

NOTE: This story is not made up or exaggerated. Just wanted to let you know.

As evidenced by your most recent speeding ticket, you have no problem reaching the peddle now, do you?
