Whipped Cream

What a title for this post!

So Leah Clifford is giving away a copy of her book A Touch Mortal (here).

There was a prompt included in the entry, to say, in 300 words or less, the craziest thing you've done. Here's mine! And no, it has nothing to do with whipped cream.

One day, my best friend and I decided we wanted to go to Universal Studios, but we needed a ride. My mom couldn’t take us so we called my uncle. Now, a week before, he had fallen and broken his arm and hurt his back. But he agreed to take us. And he stayed with us, though he was in a wheel chair. We pushed him around, enjoying ourselves and taking him on the rides we wanted to go on, that wouldn’t hurt him too bad –which wasn’t many rides. The park was getting ready to close and we wanted to go on Back to the Future the ride before we left. Well, because it’s a simulator ride and very jerky my uncle obviously couldn’t go on it. So we left him in the wheel chair/stroller parking and got in line. The line was short, we got through it quickly, rode the ride, had fun, and exited the ride. We took the stairs down and walked over to where we’d left him. And he wasn’t there. We had lost a man in a wheel chair. We started following the crowd, stopping by every vendor we passed saying “Have you seen an older man in a wheel chair go by? We’ve lost a guy in a wheel chair!” We finally found him at the wheel chair return and ended up laughing at how crazy we had to look. I mean, come on! Who loses a man in a wheel chair?

Go ahead and share your crazy stories here. My story may not be crazy-crazy but come on, I've lost a man in a wheel chair, that's pretty crazy.
