Spinning Sunday 160


The world was spinning out of control.
Nausea was overwhelming.
How could it have come to this?
I’ll never let my children
talk me into tilt-a-whirl ride again.

1. The Sunday 160 only uses 160 characters (including spaces).
2. Keep on schedule - post Sunday.
3. Let me know you have posted via a comment on my site.
4. Visit at least one other Sunday 160.

Oh dear ... sounds like a serious case of motion sickness. The same thing would happen to me if I was dragged on a ride!

I know the feeling you describe. I'd be making a mess. I'm dizzy enough without the help of a "fun" ride.

Oh, MM, I SO knpw your pain. I used to love the tilt-a-whirl as a kid. Now even the Tea Cups at Disney make me sick.

I used to love roller coasters and tilt-a-whirls as a child. Not so much anymore.

Anyway, the little ditty I came up with can be found HERE

Tina said...

I get car sick incredibly easily. No way will I get on a ride! Couldn't do it as a kid either....Loved that swirly picture...the math nerd in me sees the Fibonacci sequence....

Dianne said...

thanks for hosting,
Di

Alice Audrey said...

I feel your pain, my friend...oh for the days of our youth :) Groovy 160!

Mine is here.

gospelwriter said...

Now if that isn't tempting fate - you wouldn't believe how many times I've had to eat my own 'never again' words. Nice 160!

Here's mine.

shewriting said...

Jannie Funster said...

Now, this is funny to me because the Tilta-Whirl is about the only ride I can stomach any more. Can't do that big pirate boat, the Sizzler (sometimes called the Scrambler?) or anything that spins like the Round-Up. Poor deprived Jannie in my advanced years. :)

Caty said...

I feel you on that one. I hate the tilt-a -whirl. Never like it when I was just a little girl. I posted mine :)

gautami tripathy said...

I know how my mother felt when we insisted she ride it.

Here is mine:

I got $5 says you will.

moondustwriter said...

thanks for all your thoughtful comments :)

happy week

Sandra said...

Isn't it interesting how our gag reflex gets more delicate with age?...I'm talking about the tilt-a-whirl, not you!

Kelley said...

I feel nauseous just reading this post! They should rename those things tilt-a-hurls.

Unknown Mami said...

I love those rides!!! Just thinking about them makes me giddy.

5thsister said...

Hey Monkey! I must go into work and will not have access to my blog. Is it possible you could link me up? Here is the URL if you are so inclined: http://5thsister.blogspot.com/2010/11/sunday-160-her-mission.html

Have a happy Sunday! May all your teams win.
