Genuine Concern

Scene: on the Tilt-A-Whirl at Gillian’s Wonderland Pier in Ocean City, NJ. The ride is pretty much spinning like a top on crack because of the weight differential between a 250 pound Dad on one side and a 73 pound boy on the other side.

Dialogue:
Son: (Looks at father with concern) “Dad, are you feeling OK?”
Me: (through gritted teeth as I attempt to put on a brave face, failing miserably as the ride lurches into reverse again) “I feel fine…”
Son: (with a gleeful and wicked smile) “Well it doesn’t look that way!” (ends with long and maniacal laughter)
