I climbed into a giant hamster wheel with my children today.
Then I put my hands into a tank of fish to let them eat the dead skin off of my fingers. I learn this constitutes a spa treatment in some salons.
It tickled and was very strange indeed.
Then I went back to the hamster wheel to take funny pictures of my husband.
We were visiting the City Museum in St. Louis on our way to Colorado.
I decided (somewhere between the 11-story slide and the airplane you reach by climbing through a wire tunnel) to embrace some whimsy.
So when my youngest asked me to get into the hamster wheel, I didn’t hesitate. And when my oldest told me I could get a manicure by fish, I didn’t hesitate. I can honestly say that I accomplished two spontaneous and whimsical feats today. I remembered learning the “Beat It” moves in my kitchen; this felt like that.
What a day! How was yours?
