LJ Idol "An Adventure Of 'Yes'": The Daredevil

The pilot heads out away from the city, climbing higher and higher. He looks over to see if you're ready, and you nod.

The first barrel roll makes your stomach reel like a drunk on the highway, but the second and third are better than a rollercoaster. It's amazing! The pilot levels off and swings back around in a giant arc, and then executes four more rolls. Whoo!

He flies on for a while—is that Goldcrest down there? The hills are much denser here than you'd realized, and the river curves around them and winds off toward the horizon, as if it goes on forever.

"Ready to try something bigger?" the pilot asks.

"Hell, yeah!"

He heads back toward the open countryside again, slowly gaining altitude. Then he pulls up, and the plane goes into a gigantic loop, so slowly it feels as if you might almost fall out of the sky. Then you're coming back around again, reaching level, and the pilot does a few more celebratory rolls to finish off.

Wow. Your hands are shaking from the adrenaline and your hair feels downright crispy, as if all the color has leeched right out of it, but this is probably the most awesome thing that has ever happened to you.

You're giddy and you feel like you've accomplished something, though you don't know what.

The pilot grins, and you laugh like you've come unhinged. This was definitely an adventure!

Are you satisfied, or do you wish you'd made another choice?
