Merry-go-Hell

I'm kind of embarrassed to post this but what the heck..it's slow. A couple of weeks ago we went to the mall and Cady lit up when she saw the merry-go-round in the food court. Last time Rob took her on, this time he suggested I take her on. Sure, no problem. So I do.

I've taken her on the Merry-go-round at the zoo a few times. No problems. It's slow and stable. This one was kind of fast. Not super fast, but since it was smaller it was just faster than the huge one at the zoo. The thing takes off and I have a mini-panic attack because it's spinning and Cady's pole is going up and down and my equilibrium was all off and I felt like I was going to either fall off or be unable to prevent Cady from falling off. So I'm gripping on to her (death grip!) while standing next to her horse and her pole is going up and down. Since that is what I was using to hold on, the movement of the ground below me, helping Cady try to wave to her dad as we passed and the up and down movement of the pole made me break out in a sweat. The last three go arounds I couldn't even watch anymore as I was doing everything I could to NOT throw-up. When the ride was over, Rob came to help me because he said he could tell that I was turning green. We had to sit in the food court for about 20 minutes before I cooled down and the spins went away. Looks like dad will have to take her on the faster merry-go-rounds and I'll save myself for the large pokey ones.
