Hello to my ADHD peeps and ADHD loved ones, 

DO NOT DO ATTEMPT ANYTHING I talk about in this series because it can be dangerous and we don’t want anyone getting hurt.

Without thinking of wearing a helmet or any protective equipment/padding I jump into the cart ready for my destiny. The funny thing about destiny is it is not always what you imagine it to be. Here is a recap of those long-awaited events. I am at the top of the hill and my buddies pushed me to the edge of the hill and ask, “Are you sure that you want to do this?” Like any good stuntman I reply, “What’s the worst thing that could happen.” 

Instead of just let go of the cart and let physics do its thing my buddies push it with all their strength and in a matter of seconds this cartoon like crash occurs. I am in a squatting position flying down a hill at full speed. After going about six feet I realize I don’t want to be in a shopping cart going down a massive hill anymore. (Little late to back out now.) I start to feel the shopping cart’s backend lift, and I immediately throw my body backwards with the hope of preventing it from flipping over. (Spoiler, this did not work.) The wheels on the front of the cart lift up as if they were protesting against me making it out of this ride alive. While plummeting down the hill I realize that I’m going down a giant hill in a metal shopping cart like I’m testing it for safety in a worse-case scenario. The cart not surprisingly flips over, taking me with it. After somersaulting the rest of the way down this massive hill I make it to the bottom only slightly dizzy bearing a few scratches as battle scars. My friends are yelling to see if I am okay, and like any good stuntmen I get up triumphantly exclaiming, “That wasn’t so bad.”  Most people would think after a stupid stunt and narrowly escaping death the shenanigans would be over, but if you believe that you haven’t learned about the power of my decision making yet…

  1. This sounds very similar to something that would have happened around here back when my brothers and I were growing up, only it wasn’t a shopping cart, it would be anything with enough wheels to roll down a hill that had a creek at the bottom. No serious injuries, but actually a lot of good times.
