Adventurous Folks

So there's a new girl in Grandy's office. She's very cool, adventurous and fun. Adventurous folks don't exactly understand Grandy's phobias of things. GRANDY doesn't even understand some of her phobias.

A little while back, she's talking to someone about all the fun things she would like to do, or has already done.

"Scuba diving is my current passion right now," she says as the dialogue goes from one adventure to another.

Because Grandy is not the best swimmer in the world, she doesn't contribute to the conversation, but instead just keeps working.

Blah blah blah "hang gliding" blah blah.

Still silently working. Remember Grandy's fear of heights??

And then...


To which the person she was having the discussion with must have even thought THAT was too much for her as she says, "Good luck with THAT."

"Oh come on!!"

Then cute new girl turns her attention to me, "Hey Grandy, wouldn't skydiving be on your bucket list?"

My reply...

"I'm afraid if I had to try skydiving, it would be on my KICK-THE-BUCKET list."


Laughter ensues and Grandy dodges yet another bullet of awkwardness...kinda.

I'm with ya there on the height thing .... I always tell hubby the only way they'd get me out of a plane with a parachute on is to pry my fingers out of the walls and push me kicking and screaming out the door!! LOL
