the rollercoaster

for example, let's say you go on a roller coaster and you really had a good time but afterwards, you threw up. does the nausea take away the realness of the fun you had on the ride? no. does the fun cancel the nausea you experienced afterwards? no. both are real. and when you talk about the park afterwards, and you reminisce how you rode the roller coaster and then threw up, you can grin at the thrill n grimace at the vomit. both are still real. and then eventually, after discussin the ride so often-both the fun & the nausea- the ichiness starts to go away. hey, i loved the ride, hated the after-effects. simple. no problemo. and after passing by the ride so often, the knot in ur stomach begins to unknot itself. now we can joke. hehe remember how we were having so much fun and then u threw up after? heeehee. and then the vomit slowly places itself on the back burner. as does the fun. and then life goes on and we cook new things.


thanks ma

That's a very interesting but very apt analogy. Thanks for sharing. :)

I see what you mean.

Plus, I've done that myself, but I eventually got over it.

I'm sure there's a deeper meaning behind this story, Chavaleh. So...what is it already!?

nice analogy, but did you hafta add a metaphor for cooking at the end? vomit cooking on the back burner is a tough image for the morning. ;)
