I took my daughter to the park and I learned a few things

August 20, 2011

First, they don’t make parks like they used to anymore. By which I mean parks were crap when I was a kid and today they are awesome.

Second, any child over the age of three is far more interested in climbing up slides than sliding down them. This is because doing so is much more fun. That’s science.

Third, I can still – even at 32 years old – jump off a swing and land gracefully (if by gracefully one means painfully).

    Imagine what parks will be like for your grandchildren!

    1. Watching you fall off a swing makes me proud to be your girlfriend.
    2. After your video ends, the “Up Next” is called “The Flying Fat Kid- Swing Jump”. Coincidence? I think not…

      I didn’t fall off the swing, I jumped. I fell when I hit the ground… I also saw that next video. YouTube seems to have a mean streak.

        That’s not flying! That’s falling- with style
