tumblingdays: Post-It Note that says "Walk Around the House Like a Fucking Champion" (defiance)
Last night, my husband and I joined some friends at the state fair. We ate deep fried Oreos, rode puke-making rides, watched monkey jockeys race atop dogs (really), and... I rode a mechanical bull.

I am reluctant to call it a "bucket list," but I do have a list of kind of goofy things that I want to do at least once in my life. Riding a mechanical bull is on that list. I had to get over my self consciousness at being a fat chick on a mechanical bull. I am pretty darn confident that there were people laughing at me, especially since a friend had to hoist me up on the bull before I could even begin my ride.

It was thrilling and terrifying. Mostly terrifying. The bull is fairly high off the ground, and staying on is not as easy as it looks. (And it doesn't look easy!) The operator started me out pretty slow and then moved faster. I held my own for a bit, but then got thrown pretty spectacularly. It was fun, but now that I've done it, I'm in no hurry to do it again. This was definitely more of an "experience" than something that was enjoyable in and of itself.
