UFO

Jeg var 12 år og gledet meg hvert år til Hamar Martn, tivoliet på høsten.

Favoritt karusellen var tekoppene.
Nei,ikke den lille karusellen for småbarn men den som har 4 “armer” og vognen går rundt seg selv samtidig som den går rundt de andre vognene.

Andre i klassen hadde tatt Ufo’n og fortalte masse om den.

Dette var den kuleste karusellen. Den gikk så fort rundt at du ble sugd oppetter veggen.
Du kunne bevege deg litt slik at du var opp ned.
Noen hadde til og med dødd fordi de ble kvalme og kastet opp og ble kvelt av sitt eget oppkast.

Jeg var usikker, skulle jeg tørre å teste denne karusellen?
Var jeg tøff nok?

Men jeg “måtte” jo prøve, jeg kunne ikke feige ut nå.
Jeg må inrømme jeg var litt nervøs da karusellen startet.
Det føltes rart å bli presset opp etter veggen.

Ikke bli kvalm, ikke bli kvalm.

Heldigvis ble jeg ikke dårlig, og jeg overlevde denne kulhetstesten.

I was 12 and every year I was looking forward to the local fun fair.

My favourite ride was the tea cups. No, not the small one for small kids.
This was the big ride where the wagon spins around itself at the same time it spins around the other wagons.

Other people in my class had tried the UFO and told stories about it.

This was the coolest ride.
It was spinning so fast that you were sucked up against the wall.
You could also move a little so you could be upside down.
People had even died taking this ride, they had gotten ill so they choked on their own vomit.

I was unsure, did I dare to test this ride?
Was I that brave?

But I “had to” try, I could not chicken out now.
I have to admit I was a bit nervous when the ride started.
It felt strange being pushed up against the wall.

Don’t get sick, don’t get sick.

Luckily I did not get ill and did survive and pass this coolness test.
