I just put up a long diatribe about Six Flags Great Adventure on my other blog and thought that y’all might be amused by it. Here’s a little to “wet your whistle”:
On Thursday, Wes, Jessie, and I went to Six Flags Great Adventure. It had been years since Wes and I had been there. The previous time was about 9 years ago when Wes managed to steal me away from my boyfriend at the time by wowing me with his Whack-a-Mole prowess (that’s another hilarious story for another day). I had remembered that Six Flags is kind of awful for various reasons. The only reasons I really remembered were things like “lousy food”. But I thought it would be fun to go because I do, in fact, like roller coasters and Six Flags is certainly the place to go for roller coasters. I am partial to the wooden ones and Nitro myself.After spending the day at Six Flags I can say that if someone wanted proof of Satan’s existence, Six Flags Great Adventure is it.I remember seeing the movie “Bedazzled” for the first time (the one from the 60’s starring Dudley Moore). I thought that the depiction of Satan was the most realistic. The concept was that Satan just ran around annoying people and slowly driving them mad by doing things like committing random acts of mischief and fulfilling gross misinterpretations of people’s wishes. It was perfect. He wasn’t evil really…just an asshole. This is Six Flags in a nutshell.
