The worst five minutes of my recent life

Tonight at book club I told the story of my recent BIG bad decision, and I came home and found these pictures to remind myself of my misery. When Marcos and I were traveling in September in Europe and landed back in Munich at the end of the month, it was only natural that we went to Oktoberfest (as in, The Real Deal Oktoberfest). Besides beer, they also offer fun for the entire family. For some reason I thought this ride looked tame enough for me and my pregnant body.


Luckily, I sat right next to Marcos. While he screamed, "Woo-HOO! This is SOOOO AWESOME!" and we spun at some unhealthy angle above the entire city of Munich, I sat with every muscle tense and my eyes, mouth and every hole in my head pursed shut so that I wouldn't leak anything.


As if I needed ANY help feeling sick...

that is the scariest ride i've ever seen in my whole life. roller coasters don't scare me but things like this kill me!

For some reason though, I always think I'm going to die while riding something like this... It doesn't keep me away though... hmmm.
