It was supposed to be a "staff bonding" moment for us... The church staff team and some of our spouses got all decked out in a harness and helmets and went on a high wire "confidence" course. It was supposed to be liberating and fun and build a spirit of camaraderie.
|Yours Truly. Terrified.|
I was talked into doing it. Sounded simple. You put on a butt-hugging harness and clip yourself to a verrry thin wire. You go way high in the air and climb around trees with the squirrels. It ended with a zip wire. To this day, the memory of it sends chills down my spine.
You may have read David Foster Wallace's essay "A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again" where he notes his lack of enthusiasm for going on a cruise. (That's putting it in a nutshell. It's hilarious. Do read it!) However, I think it (perhaps) is just a wee bit of a hyperbole. ;) Some of our awesome RevGals are heading out on the next BE 6.0 (Big Event) for a cruise. They absolutely will have an amazing time. A very non-DFW cruise. And even the cruise-phobic among us would wish that!
All this is the inspiration for this week's Friday Five!
Perhaps you have tried something that everyone assured you was SO MUCH FUN!!! and you swore on a stack of Bibles that you would never ever be dragged to said activity ever again. Was it horseback riding? Rappelling? Ballet class when you were 7?
So share with us 5 Supposedly Fun Things You'll Never EVER Do Again. You may find some commiserating souls among us. A bonus if you share pictures.
P.S. Bon voyage to our Rev Gal friends! May you have smooth seas, sunny skies and many little umbrellas in your drinks. :)
