The howling you heard may have been from me

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I was away for a few days. And since I know that you are overcome with curiousity, I'll tell you where I went. Great Wolf Lodge. If you haven't heard of it before, it's a big hotel that has an indoor waterpark just for hotel guests. Cool, huh? There are actually quite a few of them around the country, but we went to the one here in Washington. Let me tell you, this place is a kids' paradise. Magic wands, talking animals, arcades, sweet shop... Oh yeah, and the indoor waterpark.

Waterparks mean bathing suits.

Yes, the poor unsuspecting public had to see me in a bathing suit. Fortunately/unfortunately, when they looked at me they were blinded by the brilliant flash of white that is my skin. Hey, they should have taken the potential danger into consideration when they made their vacation plans.

Anyway, in the middle of the park, way up high, is a 1000 gallon bucket that fills with water. When full, the bucket tips and spills all those gallons of water onto anyone who happens to be below it.

If you're standing under the bucket at the wrong time, your blissful ignorance turns to shock and awe very quickly. Ask me how I know this. Yup. I got clobbered. I have to say, that video hardly does it justice. It's much worse when you're standing under it. And people are pointing and laughing. Yeah. Good times.

So, have you checked out my blog carnival, Life is Funny, yet? How about joining in? You know you've got a story to tell. We all want to hear it!

Oh that place looks like way too much fun!

Congrats on you sporting the bathing suit & the white skin...I'm dreading the same thing this weekend. What happened to the long shorts & big bathing suits of yester year...yeah not any years where we have been alive, but still can't a gal cover up a little without feeling strange!?!

I'm sure they were only pointing and laughing because you looked silly. They were probably doing that before, but you didn't notice (says the Queen of the Supermarket Salsa...). I hope I helped some...

I'm starting to lose some of my "whiteness" here since the weather has started to cooperate. Maybe you should take a vacation to someplace sunny, so you can work on your tan...
