Saturday Special: Creative Adventure XV
1. While on vacation the past two weeks, I took the time to visit an old amusement park that is now abandoned. Hearing what sounds like carousel music I decided to enter the park through the open gate and much to my surprise I see an old couple walking around with a little girl. The girl looked to be around 6 years old.
2. Waiting for the ride to stop I find myself getting up on one of the biggest roller coasters I have ever see. "Wow!", I think to myself, "This is going to be an awesome ride!"
3. Feeling like a young kid again I close my eyes, smile and hum along with the music until stops and I hear nothing but the beating of my heart. I hold my breath waiting for the music to start again. I slowly turn in circles looking for the girl and the old couple.
4. Now a little sad I realize it was all in my imagination and leaving the park I think to myself how I miss the good old days. I miss my grandparents and my parents and all the good times we had.
