six flags!

On Monday, the bosses closed down the shop for staff appreciation day and they treated us to tickets to Six Flags :) It was my first time there and my first time on roller coasters that go upside down, and it was scary. I had to have someone hold my hand for almost all the rides, except for the carousel cause I'm a wimp like that. Yes, even on the kiddy ones (ESPECIALLY the kiddy Ferris wheel, because that thing is so tiny and me, Ashley, Kiki, and Brian crammed ourselves into one cabin) because everything becomes a hundred times scarier after the big rides.

I guess I should say here that some of the pictures aren't taken by me. I hope you can tell from the terrible Facebook quality.

After going on the Superman. Everyone was saying that it's a good starter ride because it's not scary but I ended up crying (only little tears!) and screaming everyone's ears off. We went on Green Lantern after that, which goes upside down AND YOU'RE STANDING so it makes everything worse. Insert more crying and screaming there. The last roller coaster I went on was Bizarro, which wasn't as bad as Green Lantern but still pretty bad for me, haha.

El Toro! But I didn't go on because Brian said it's wooden so it's not as smooth as the ones made out of metal. That and, there's only a lap bar so it "literally feels like you're going to fly off." He hates that one, too.

Lost parents. Not lost kids.

The guys and the gals~ We wanted Jessie to lay down on us because she's the manager, haha. Not my favorite picture of me but it's the memories behind the picture that counts, right? So it's ok if you don't look good in it, as long as the memory makes you happy. We were trying to make the guys do that heart thing but Jon and Brian were having a lot of trouble. ("That's not even a heart! That's a square!" Jessie says.)

Everyone besides me, Brian, and Flora went to ride Nitro and the Batman after lunch. Flora's just as scared of roller coasters as I am and refused to go on any of them, and Brian and I didn't want to throw up after eating all that food. So we bought some ice cream, walked around to the arcade, and decided to go on the big Ferris wheel because that's peaceful, right?

Nope, Ferris wheel of doom. I say doom because every time they stopped it to let people on and off, the cabin stops abruptly so it's swaying in the air. Also because it seemed to be going fast for a Ferris wheel. The view is pretty from the top, though!

The winner! I insisted on naming it Jon (first name) Becky (middle name) but everyone else insisted on Jon (first name) Bri (middle name) so I guess I'll have to accept that. Jon Bri now sits on top of the fridge near the counter, and it's our store's mascot.

The carousel, which was the funnest ride for me. There's something very relaxing about being on it, and watching other people's horses (and chickens) go up and down.

Selfies, with Ashley and Brian. Ashley's seriously the cutest!! She's so short and huggable and she gives me this face whenever I call her cute because she knows I'm saying that she's cute for being so short. I usually don't take selfies, but I realize it's nice for remembering the little moments. It's easy to match memories to pictures.

When we returned to work the next day, I'm pretty sure I heard Boss #1 say, "Who was the first to cry?" and Jessie said "Becky."

Until next post,
