Say No To B.O And Speedos
A couple of weeks ago - the kids and I were at California Adventure. We were having a great time on a very hot and sticky Southern California day... The lines were not too bad - but boy was it hot... My daughters and I were in line to go on California Screamin roller coaster and Kara, my youngest wanted to ride with me. If you have never been on this ride - I have to say it's a must do for the roller coaster fans out there... it's fast - not too bumpy - great loop - and just plain fun.. Anyway, Kara is sitting next to me and I leaned over to help her with the harness and I got a whiff of the most horrid BO - it was truly offensive... I'm thinking to myself there is no way that smell is coming from my kid - she's only eleven (11).... When we got off the ride - I lowered my head for a sniff and sure enough - it was her!!!!! Oh My Gosh - how can that be????? I am not the most discreet person - I told her she stunk.. She was offended for sure - but I told her I refused to ride with her again until she washed her stinky armpits!!! I know, I'm a mean and horrible mom..
We went to the bathroom and my kid is too embarrassed to have mom washing her pits.. So I get a couple of paper towels and tell her to go at it.. The dirty looks coming my way... I tell ya.. She is refusing to wash - so I again tell her she was stinky girl and there was no way.. I'm getting near her... seriously - it was that bad... We ended up going into a stall and I washed the stinky smelling pits - and she was fresh.. or at least not so ripe.... So I found it funny when I read an article today about an amusement park in the UK that introduced a new rule called, " Say no to B.O." no kidding..
Thorpe Park in the UK has seriously placed this rule.. Any time the temperature reaches 77F and above - the guests must keep their arms down on the rides at all times... I had to laugh out loud - but the most hilarious rule an UK amusement park had - was at Alton Towers - they banned Speedos from the the premises.. why? To protect the children of course........ So of course in my minds eye - I'm picturing a stinky guy in a speedo.... nothing could be worse!!!!
