Me on a flying trapeze. No, seriously!

No word of a lie, Michael reminded me of a healthier time, back in early 2009, when I took a vacation to Jamaica.

A bunch of teenagers tried this and failed before me.

I got my black-sock-fitted ass up on that high trapeze post there, and did this on my first attempt. Well, I mean, the socks were on my feet, not my ass, and all I had was black csocks... Anyway, BEHOLD:



Admittedly, I was too sore to do it again afterwards (my next two attempts were failures), but by gawd, I did do it!!!

  1. I'm far too afraid heights to do something like that. Kudos to you!

    1. @J.Day - The scariest part was climbing the rickety ladder. Then the next hardest was actually pushing your pelvis forward holding the bar, trusting the guy would hold you. But falling into the net was so much fun!

    1. @Leauxra - You know what? We should both just be amazed that I didn't somehow break something on my body, or pull an ass muscle. lol. You SHOULD try it, it was awesome. It put me in such a good mood for days!

  5. The Hell! Who even does that? You need to be on Circus of the Stars. I don't even know you and yet I am so proud of you! How weird is that?

  6. That's millions better than I could ever attempt to do, first attempt or not.

    Also, it sounds way too windy for what I imagine Jamaica to be like.

  7. That actually looks like a lot of fun. I reckon I would try that. I would probably totally freak out and have to be rescued.

    You are amazing to do it first time.
