26.12.08: HG MAD Camp
My official MAD camp and 2nd(!!) day at MAD. :)
Met a lottta volunteers and me spent 1 hr totally clueless as to what to do.Then came in my bro who said that theyre in dire need for some assistance from somebody short(grr!!)(went out wid him , again clueless as to whats in store for me)
Varki was all smiles..(errr..,tws an evil grin actually). He asked me if i could do the monkey gliding. Me feeling all important said, yes i’d do that, no probs.Climbed up the platform(or whatever its called) wid papa monkey’s(varki) guidance.
He wid his sheepish grin buckled up the safety belts on me and he went down(now i know Y) and said jump!!
me: what?? :O
me: oh, u mean, hold the pulley and the bar and jump??
he: No, just jump.
me: as in freefall??
he: ((sheepishness changes to a W-I-D-Er grin)). yes.jump
me: No way!!!
he: Edi listen, just jump.Even if u fall, nothing bad is gonna happen
me: oh really?
he: Common girl, atmost u’ll die.But u get to die in the arms o a founder member of MAD.
me: u r one of em??(i din kno)
he: ((pride turns to a seriously “injured” look)) yes. now jump
((and he kept rambling and rambling in order to inspire me to jump!!))
me: can i hold onto something??
he: NO.see, the whole purpose is to check if the safety belt would snap off!!
he: so jump now!! if we let something happen to one of the girls, we’re screwed(MAD spirit),but wid u its ok.
me: fine then, im jumping.
******_______and i jumped_______*****
he: Oh Good, it din snap off.
U are the official dummy of MAD from now on.. :D
me: ((a day well spent and i din break any bones)) :D
and guess what???, in the end, the girls did the monkey gliding without the safety belts on.. (funny, i risked getting my bones broken all in vain)
