aka The Frazzled Mom
I don’t do well in crowds, which causes me to reflect on the reasons why I put up with them at amusement parks. Why do I bother with Disneyland?
This day was no different than any other. The park was crowded and, thanks to all of the bodies, was warm. I didn’t want to be touched, brushed against or even feel the warmth of the person next to me, but really didn’t have a choice. Fireworks had just ended… Fantasmic had just ended. And now everyone was out in the middle of Main street. We painstakingly pushed towards Adventure land. Usually, at this point I start “mooing” because I really end up feeling like just one of the herd.
But on this occasion, a thought popped into my head.
Before I could stop myself, I said to my husband as I pushed the stroller, “You know…if a zombie apocalypse hit, we’d be screwed.”
It was the randomness, the matter-of-fact tone in my voice, I think that caught him by surprise and made him laugh.
The thing is… I can’t recall if I was like this before or after we married. 😉
