Yes, I Jumped Out Of A Perfectly Functioning Aircraft... On Purpose

I'm so late telling this story. I'll keep it short and sweet. (I'll try!!) I'll let my Instagram pictures tell the story...

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="300"]20121220-151948.jpg Back in August for our 30th birthdays, (our birthdays are two days apart) the BFF had the bright idea of celebrating via skydiving. I was hesitant but I went along with it.[/caption]

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="300"]20121220-152118.jpg As we were getting strapped up, BFF was like: *thumbs up* and I was thinking: *prayers go UP!*[/caption]

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="300"]20121220-152250.jpg This was our ride.[/caption]

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="300"]20121220-152347.jpg The higher up we go, the more nervous I was becoming. My facial expression on the bottom right is priceless.[/caption]

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="300"]20121220-152456.jpg Yes, I closed my eyes before the big push. Kept them closed for a good 15 seconds after the jump.[/caption]

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="300"]20121220-152648.jpg I went back and forth between muttering: "Oh, shyt!", "Lawd, Jesus!" and "Oh, my God!" the whole way down.[/caption]

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="300"]20121220-152850.jpg Mid-air he asked me if I wanted to twirl in a circle. I screamed: "Noooo!". This dude did it anyway! Lawd![/caption]

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="300"]20121220-153020.jpg Safe landings. Praise tha Lawd![/caption]

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="300"]20121220-153100.jpg We survived! Our facial expressions convey exactly what we were feeling after it was all over. I am not doing that ish again. I like being on solid ground and having some control of my life.[/caption]

*whew*

What's on YOUR bucket list?
