I'm tired, so what?

Me: If you could do any dangerous/thrill-seeking activity and be guaranteed that you wouldn't get hurt, what would it be?
Nordic Boy: Mountain climbing.
Delium: Mine would be base jumping. No, wait. Dynamic Soaring. No, wait. I would time travel to dinosaur times and then get chased by a T-Rex.
Me: I never said time travel could be involved.
Delium: What about you?
Me: All of yours sound exciting and fun. But kind of hard. Too much effort. I think I would choose luge. Because you get to lie down for that.
Delium: I think you still have to put forth effort. To steer. Those Olympic Luge people aren't taking a nap in there, you know.
Me: Oh. Well, isn't there a style where I could just be a passenger? The real luge people could do the work. I could just ride along.
Delium: I don't think it works like that.
Me: You're just shitting on mine because I shut down your T-Rex thing.
Nordic Boy: So wow. You didn't even choose your adventure based on sitting down. You went for full on reclining.
Me: Yeah. I want thrills. But if I can lie down at the same time, it's a double win. Although the prospect of the not flattering outfit might outweigh the whole lying down thing. So I don't know.
Nordic Boy: You are a unique young lady.
Me: Just figuring that out?

I will do the 3 man luge with you (is there a 3 man luge?) so that I can just kind of lay there too. I am all for that.

I vote for base jumping!

Could one somehow attach side cars to a luge? I'd sign up for that activity.

I think it's pretty sweet that Nordic Boy is still sufficiently surprised by you to mention your uniqueness after all this time.

"you're just shitting on mine because I shut down your T-Rex thing." ah man. love your crazy conversations. speaking of thrill seeking... i'm going bungee jumping for my sister's birthday in september. 200ft jump into water. oof. when i say it like that, sounds like some crazy ass shit and makes me wonder what the hell i got myself into.
