The Ride of Your Life
"No, you never get any fun out of the things you haven't done."
- Thomas Nash
I've had a lot of fun in my life. I've gone on a cruise, and ridden on a hot air balloon and on top of an elephant. I've enjoyed sleds, saucers, toboggans, snowmobiles, ice skates, and downhill and cross-country skis. I've in-line skated and tried out a go-kart, a surfboard, a wave runner, a water slide, and numerous amusement park rides. There's a lot I still haven't done, though. I still want to go parasailing and experience the Chunnel. Dreaming about something and actually doing it are as different as sitting on a bench watching someone else shoot down a water slide and actually doing it yourself. No comparison.
TODAY I WILL STOP DREAMING ABOUT PARASAILING AND I'LL MAKE RESERVATIONS TO ACTUALLY DO IT.
