    Chapter 35. Tuesday, February 5th. Day 6. Part 5. A meltdown.

    So when I last left you. We had just finished the Maharajah Jungle Trek and as evidenced by the picture of me on the bench, I was more than ready to go back to the room.....

    As we walked to the exit of Asia, we noticed a crowd of people. Hmmm....what's going on?

    It's a bit past 4pm........it's the Jammin Jungle Parade of course.:headache:

    If you've read any of my PTR, you know I am NOT a parade type of guy. Not that I bag on anyone who is into them. I'm just not into them myself.

    Of course, RoboJo's friends want to stay and watch the parade. I know Derek wants to go back to the room by the look on his face. Kim and I aren't thrilled. But if you know the Japanese culture, we don't like to make waves even if it means inconveniencing ourselves. So we stick around.....

    So here's my meltdown.........in my head:

    " I can't believe I have to sit here and watch this stupid parade."

    "Don't they know that I ate Onion Rings for lunch? I'm ready to explode. Quick someone find me a Depends..."

    "Do they know how much angst they caused me with all the ADR changing before the trip...and all for nothing!!!!"

    "I'm hot."

    "I'm sweaty."

    "I'm stinky."

    "I'm tired."


    Well...we stayed and watched the parade....I got off some shots:

    For Dan (FauntleroyFan07). Donald, me and the tongue:
    [​IMG]

    LOOK!!! Mickey's a DISer!!!! He's sportin' his Lime Green....Props.
    [​IMG]

    After the parade, I caught a pix of RoboJo and her friends:
    [​IMG]

    We went our separate ways......

    Joshie, Robo, Baby J, Kim, Derek, Dylan and I trucked to the entrance and caught the bus back to BCV. We had good bus mojo both coming and going. No wait...at all......sweeeet.

    Once we got back to the room, we all crashed.

    Here's Kim and a long lost friend:

    Here's me and how I was feeling all day after eating the Onion Rings:

    Hey Jordan,

    Not a parade person myself. :headache:

    BTW, ever think of writing something other than a TR and sermon?

    Well worth the short wait for your update!
    Stay away from those onions!
    Our cultures couldn't be more opposite, I'm a very opinionated Italian, Irish, American Indian mix! :rotfl:
    If I don't like it, you will know.
    I saw the Ak parade in 1998. If it hasn't changed, I don't need to see it again.

    I never would have been able to keep that all inside...it would have been like a nuclear plant meltdown. :)

    Well...duh...of course, he is (channeling of my 10-year-old). :rotfl:

    Go to sleep...go to sleep...go to sleep, Kim and Flat Winkers...

    I know that feeling! Onions have the same effect on me, but I cannot resist their siren call!

    I hate getting stuck in a parade. :made:

    I think it's just me and you bro. Everyone else loves them. :headache:

    Buzzman culture is different. If I'm inconvenienced, I drink more beer. :drinking:

    We all need a good meltdown. Your's was similar to the ones I have just prior to going to church. :confused3



    Seems to be a lot of pictures with you and your tongue. Japanese culture? popcorn::

    The diatribe in your head made me laugh! I have never seen the AK parade and never had a desire to do so...I do enjoy the MK parade, but I'm ready for a new one.

    I don't like the parades either. The only one I've ever watched is the MNSSHP parade. You're a trooper for sitting through it!

    No. I was out bidded. I'll keep looking. Might have to pay full price.

    These two pics made me laugh.
    I like the parade but the rest of my family doesn't.
    Best parade to view is the night time parade at MK on top of Splash Mountain.
    Only get to see it for a little bit, but it's breath taking.:thumbsup2
