Momma taking over here to join in Bacon’s Show and Tell for today! Today’s Show and Tell was a gift that I hated. I thought about writing this from Finn and Charley’s perspective, but that didn’t seem to work, I mean they just love everything. So, I can can definitely tell you about something I received that I did not like. I actually bought it for myself….
On a vacation a few years back, I decided it would be fun to visit the Capilano Suspension Bridge in Vancouver.
It was my idea, and I made all the arrangements. The day comes to go and the plans fall into motion. We would catch a bus from our hotel that would take us to the park and we would spend the day there, away from the city. When we get there, we decide that before we try out the suspension bridge, we would first try the sky walk. Easy peasy.
Great! Fun! Look at me, I’m a rock star!
Then, we move over to the suspension bridge.
I start to head out on the bridge. My knees buckle. I panic. My hands start sweating. I have to turn around and head back to the beginning. I walk over to a bench, I watch person after person after person walk across the bridge and make it to the other side in complete safety. I try again. I take a step. I feel the bridge sway in the wind. I begin to cry. I walk off it again. I sit to the side for a second time, watching everyone else walk across. I try for the third time. This time, a complete meltdown. Hysterics. People staring. Snot streaming down from my nose. We literally have to leave the park because my fears have just taken control of my body and I broke down. Ugh, it was horrible. I hated myself for not being able to go over it!
The rest of our time in Vancouver was really nice – I would highly recommend it to anyone considering a visit there. But I will just never forget this one thing!
So there you have it, a gift I hated….given to me by myself!
