Fear of Heights

Michael insists that he is afraid of heights.  This is something he brings up on a regular basis, and he does not like being contradicted on the matter.  Do not question him, he will fight with you about it.

So, here are some of the things he did while we were on vacation last week.

  • When we went to the small amusement park at the beach he asked to go on the Ferris Wheel first.
  • After getting off the Ferris Wheel, he ran straight to the Pirate Ship. 
  • Also while we were down the shore he asked to climb Barneget Light again.  It's 172 feet tall.
  • We also went to Hershey park during vacation.  Third ride?  Pirate Ship.
  • He went on the Comet, Hershey's icon wooden roller coaster. It's 84 feet tall.
  • He made three trips on the Sooper Dooper Looper, a 75 foot tall roller coaster that loops upside down.
  • He had a blast on Hershey's Kissing Tower.  It's only 330 feet tall.
Conclusion?  I don't think that "afraid of heights" means what he thinks it means.
