#748 That feeling in your stomach when you go really high on the swings

Because now you’re finally tall and can look down at the world below you. Gone are those constant views of ankles, coffee table legs, and your family cat’s hollow, piercing eyes. Now you’re zooming up and over gardens, sandlots, and your baby brother’s distant, fading cries.

Stomach gushing, adrenaline rushing, it’s your first taste of the high life.

  1. Neil, you always make me feel so nostalgic. I haven’t played on a swing in aaaaaages! …Which is inexcusable, considering there’s a swing set in the park 200 metres from my house. :P

  2. I can’t swing on swings anymore just because of this feeling. I guess I’m too old now because all I want to do is throw up. As a kid, though, it was great!

    1. Yeah, I can swing a bit, but if I go high I get nauseous…LOL! But I well remember that sensation of sailing high above everything else, feeling like I was flying!

  3. Some of my best memories involve swinging. Lots of my favorite places in the world have swingsets. :)

  4. Dude! and when you wind your swing real tight and let go, pull yourself into a little ball and spin faster than the speed of light? Those are the feels.
