Default I learned a valuable lesson yesterday...

Don't go to an amusement park when you have an ear infection. Or atleast don't ride coasters that do loops and twists.

I love rollercoasters. Hell, that's about the only thing I will ride anymore. Rides that spin ya in circles will make me sick. But I've never had a problem with a rollercoaster before in my life. Bring on the loops, corksccrews, pretzels, etc... I love em! But damn... The 3rd coaster I rode yesterday had a loop and a pretzel in it and that was it.

Barf city and my head did not stop spinning for hours afterward. :(

The ear infection took hold Tuesday evening. It hurt like hell Wednesday but of course it being the 4th, I couldn't get to the doctors. By Thursday it hurt enough that the doc also prescribed antibiotics and Vicodin for the pain and so I could sleep. Friday morning it still hurt but wasn't as bad as Wednesday.

Anyway.... I woke up this morning and weighed 7 pounds less than yesterday morning.

Sorry to hear about that PN. I learned the same lesson regarding ear infections myself on a cross-country airplane flight. I was in misery for hours. Same story with a bad case of sinusitis I had once as well.

Nope. I'm a very good puker. I always know a few minutes before it's gonna happen. Then I get somewhere safe to hurl. I didn't blow chunks until about 20 minutes after the ride. My head was spinning afterward. My stomach caught up later.

On a side note... We arranged for a large group to go yesterday. We had 20 tickets and got a nice discounted price too. There were a few tickets left over coz one family bagged the trip. So.... We're going back to Hershey Park next week.

I'm gonna kick that coasters ass all day long.

I'll be good to go the second time.

As a kid we went to Kennywood several times a year. I could handle anything in the park. Then after college, getting married, etc... after maybe 10 years of not going to KW, we went and I rode the Enterprise. I came off that ting and couldn't stand up straight for 20 minutes. I knew then that spinning rides were over for me.
