ABC Wednesday "E" is for Exercise

These trampoline parks are now popular here. When I was in junior high in the US light-years ago, friends and I used to spend hours bouncing on trampolines. Later I learned their demise was due to overly-exuberant bouncers who bounced right off onto the hard ground. At least now there's a mesh fence and padding around.

Do you really think that teens accept these nests over here? Well better be around when they bounce, I tell you.

Walking behing teenagers at the HS the other day I overheard that you could dye your hair with vegetables!

I would totally do that if we had them here. It will never catch on here in America, but it would sure be fun. A lot of people have trampolines with nets in their own backyards, so there's really no demand for a park of them. But I don't have one, and would relish the opportunity to enjoy one on a whim.

Sometimes I don't, sometimes I do said...

Pat, let me add my prayers - hope your husband recovers quickly and completely.

Best,
Shantaram

"Louis" remembers those trampolines...he was always such a klutz (and still is) that he didn't/couldn't/wouldn't do much on them...

Alexa said...

Yes, we had these when I was a teenager, the much more dangerous version, of course.
Let me add my positive thoughts to everyone else's and say that I hope all is going well w/you.

i am terrified of trampolines, have heard so many horrifying stories about accidents on them (or off them)...
