free fall

A friend of mine is moving away, but she had a few things she wanted to do in Hawaii before leaving. When she mentioned sky diving was on the list, I jumped on board just as quick as I could, and the two of us plus another friend did it this week.

Now, I thought it was going to be the best thing ever....but I was wrong. It was even better than the best. It felt like flying, and now I have the added bonus of being able to slip that nonchalant reference into daily conversation. You know, "How was your week?" "Oh, it was alright. Let's see...I did some laundry, caught up on some reading, and uh...jumped out of an airplane over the ocean. You?"

Are you kidding me?! My hands are getting sweaty just thinking about it!

But to feel like flying-now that would be amazing.
