Once my friend and I had a roller-coaster ride.

Once my friend and I had a roller-coaster ride. When the cable car began climbing up and picking up speed, my hands and feet got cold and I began feeling uncomfortable. Then, when we reached the highest point of the railroad’s turn, we had a chance to have a quick bird’s eye view of the town like we were at the Eiffel Tower. The feeling was beyond description: the town was spread out in front of us over the hills at the eastern bank of the Hudson River.

 Suddenly the cable car fell down with reckless speed and my heart sank, my guts were playing a strange game like trying to jump out of me. I tightened my grip of the bar with cold sweating hands, and at that very moment I wished nothing, but to stop falling to the bottom. I heard my friend was shouting something to me, but his voice faded among other voices, and the only sound that I could hear was just immensely loud long “A-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a…….”

At the lowest point of the turn my body and mind relaxed, but the anticipation of the same experience seized me when the cable car began moving up.

It was my first and the last roller-coaster ride.

    I have never been able to go on a roller coaster. I am a real coward. I think you are so brave to attempt such a ride. You described it vividly.


  • ranjani prakash on Oct 23, 2010

  • Ukrainian on Oct 23, 2010

    Ranjani Prakash, how I can understand you… I felt the same after having my baby.
