When I was in high school we had an assignment to “do something you’ve never done before and write about it”.  I went to our little local airport and asked if someone would take me up in an airplane.  For $10 someone did.  It was a little 2 seat crop-duster like plane.  We rode around the county and over my house.  I said “make like a crop duster”.  I should not have said that.  After a few sweeps and dips I felt really sick.  I had trouble maintaining the speed limit going home (it did not seem like I was going very fast at all).  I was still very nauseated when I got home and just went to my room to lie down.  My mother said, “you went up in a plane after I told you not to–didn’t you”?  How did she do that?  2016
