That video's my jam, thanks for sharing. Possibly locking the ladder for themselves too? Yeah, I don't need that game that badly.

And dang MZero, glad to hear some success stories from that game!

I go back to the pedal-boats and was like "You're not gonna believe this but I actually won one!" Steve and Juan laugh, then joke about how we'll need a bigger boat.

Juan then jokes about putting a life jacket on before trying to get me on the boat...followed by an awkward delay where I'm like "Okay, let's put one on." He wasn't serious -- I was. Its lifejacket was barely able to go around its head and neck, but it worked.

Steve helps me on the boat and asks if I was doing this for the picture -- yeah, plus the story dude. He jokes about how this is going on social media, and I bounce back saying this is the least social thing you could put on social media. We laugh -- I think I'm less embarrassed than him.

I'm familiar with driving boats on water so I know they don't move or stop like cars, but MAN these were barely manageable. You baaically have a crazy-straw-lookin' joystick to control your rudder, and despite twenty minutes or so on this ride it was never clear to me how to angle it in any direction successfully. I could steer better backwards, but i could pedal better forwards. It was a mess trying to do this while holding the bear up so it wouldn't jam the pedals on its side.

At one point my pedals broke off and I was scared I would be stranded, onky to have someone come and steal my bear away from me while I lay stuck in a boat. Turns out I could still pedal the mrtal bar beneath it, but it hurt my feet.

I get back and talk with Steve a minute about what funny things he sees at this ride. He tells me about the time two overweight people got on a boat and he was trying to be respectful about the weight-limit of the boats (he thinks 1,200 pounds...!), nut they insisted they do this all the time so he let them on. I didn't know fairground regulations worked like that, but whatever, right. Anyway, as they get to the lake their boat is sinking into the lake so he pedals out there as fast as he can to let one of them get on his boat. Somehow that transfer worked out fine, but it catapulted the other person into the air and made a huge splash. I see some potential holrs in this story but just laugh it off and thank them for their time. I ask them for their names -- Steve is proud and Juan is reserved and kinda suspicious of me for asking.

I then get a sour apple snoball and rush homr to unload my prize before a play. My roommate has stopped asking questions or laughing at my absurd animals when I come in.

Before I play Bottle Up, I play a game I've had my eye on awhile -- I'm gonna call it the Swinging Ladder.

Basically, this is the game where you're on a swinging ladder and you have to climb upward to its end to win a huge prize. I have poor balance in certain circumstances and I know this game's not for me to likely win...but I try it anyway. It looks fun and I liked the girl running it named Rose -- I saw her trying to hustle me into the game the other day while on her smoke break, yelling something like "I can't walk away from here and this is my only chance, give me five minutes!" She also powers her way up the ladder consistently, so yeah, good job being good at your game -- I'M LOOKING AT ALL YA'LL BASKETBALL-BASED GAMES

I get two tries for $5. I take the first few steps okay -- you know, the parts where my heavy feet have an inflatable surface to press against so I don't flip over -- but once I lose that advantage, by design I'm sure, my body gets all shaky trying to keep control and it doesn't take long for me to flip upside to fall.

I asked her for how the pros do this well -- by the way, anytime you want to talk with a carnival worker, ask them how the pros do this so they have a moment to feel smart around you -- and her trick was to never stop moving. I assure you, I really wanted to do this, but my body was like a speed-run of Mischief Makers: SHAKE SHAKE SHAKE

Oh well, pretty fun to try. I'd love to practice this and get good, but my dad didn't play this thirty years ago and recreate a version of the game he could hand down to me years later so I'm not too stressed here.
Trick to that game is to not use the rungs. Only stay on the ropes themselves.

You can stay on just the ropes?! I'm gonna have to look at this again.

From that site:

Stand the Bottle

You are given a fishing pole with a small ring attached to the end of the line. Your goal is make a soda bottle (laying on its side) stand using this contraption.

The trick is to PUSH the bottle up rather than pull it up.


Simplistic but true...except it plays better with a beer bottle.

Taking this advice to the face now!

Oh, by the way, an ex texted me after no contact in a few months yesterday. I then accidentally texted her these bear pictures instead of responding to her actual text. Whoops.

She was a fan though.
