I’ll try almost anything, from interesting appetizers to funky nail polish to inverted roller coasters (though I’ll do that only once).
But there are a few things I won’t do. Never. Not even if you paid me.
One of those things is bungee jumping.
I can’t see the fun in jumping — willingly! — from a bridge or crane or some unsafe structure with just an elastic cord strapped to my ankles. What’s the thrill is free-falling into a gorge, staring death in the face, then flying back upwards, then back down again, until the energy dissipates — and you’re lower back and neck are permanently tweaked.
No. I won’t do it.
And yeah, I saw that woman — Frances Gabe, a colon cancer survivor — who celebrated her 91st birthday with a bungee jump at the Big Fresno Fair yesterday. But even she admits it’s not for everyone.
And it’s certainly not for me.
Is there something you absolutely will not do, not even for money?
