What does it all mean?

A few months ago, a 'friend' sent me a gift certificate to go bungee jumping.  Well, at least I thought of him as my friend, but then I was like, 'What kind of friend would think to himself, hey, I know just what Maren needs, to throw herself off a 100 foot tower...'

If I am being honest, I guess that I would have to admit that I am not totally innocent in all of this, because I did cooperate enough to send him my address, however it was during a moment of 'weakness'... a time when I was all 'It is what it is' and 'I am open to whatever the Universe brings me'.  Maybe it wasn't a time of weakness at all but instead a time of complete and utter lunacy.

Until yesterday, I truly thought that I had 'dodged the bullet' so to speak.  The gift certificate has an expiry date of June 30, 2011 and I will be honest, I was going to let the date slip by 'unnoticed'.  Unfortunately, (or fortunately, I'm not sure yet), the Universe also brought me a jumping companion who also happens to be the 'lucky' holder of a Bungee Jumping gift certificate with the same expiry date (again, if you are considering giving this as a 'gift' THINK ABOUT THE MESSAGE PEOPLE!).  Thanks to Justin, there was going to be nothing quiet about 'missing' the expiry date.  Soooo.... today is the day. 

Okay... I am going to go and throw up now... and try to come up with 'the message' of this whole experience... Your friends don't really like you?  Hurling yourself off buildings is fun?  Throwing up in public isn't really that humiliating? 

Oh man.  I just want to get this thing over with.


  1. Hey kiddo, better you than me for sure....but you're going to be o.k. You've got strength, fortitude, and wisdom, to never ever do this again. Besides which, you may just love it, it could happen.......
    Let us all know how you made out!
    Remember to choose your friends wisely (which you do), and that they want you to stretttttttttttttch yourself to the limit (s). Who am I kidding.
    Good luck, I'll be thinking of you

  2. It will be a fantastic moment of self discovery, whether you jump or not. But I know you are going to jump. And the adrenaline high is fantastic trust me. Good luck. Deanne

  3. OMG. You are a much braver soul than I. Personally, I'd much rather toss the gift certificate off of a tall building... or perhaps the giver of said certificate!

    I was gonna tell you a long story about my one experience with "adrenaline sports" but I decided it wouldn't be helpful. I'll be thinking of you...
