Bitten By The Bug

Postby Knoted4ever » Fri, Mar 14 2008, 11:43 PM

Wow! i had a very busy day at work today... TGIF... but, unexpectedly, 3 different people came up to me and told me that they were either taking their kids or their grandkids kiteflying this weekend! i don't know if my passion and enthusiasm for kiting had anything to do with it... but, regardless, it was cool to hear!

One super sweet woman, who is the dental hygiene assistant at work, happened to have her grand-daughter with her at the end of the day, as i was leaving to go home. She stated that they were going to go kiting... and i said to the little girl, as i smiled: "i fly kites all the time; kind of neat for a older kid of my age, don't you think?" She just acted a bit shy and kept a safe distance behind grandma. :wink:

In the future, maybe 8 people will tell me (within one day)!

:shock: It kills me how you guys try to throw that huge, black, villainous cloak over everything innocent and beautiful and precious! The Dark Side is certainly persistent! i'm having a lot of trouble sleeping well at night lately. :shock:

It is useless to resist.

That's OK tom, I still play on both sides of the fence :twisted:
It's a great satisfaction knowing that for a brief point in time you made a difference.

Maybe, it's you dual liners who are wearing the cloak... and it is us quad guys trying to pull of off of you?

And Chris does well too. There are plenty others who fly both. I've even seen Tom with a quad!

So, maybe there's a glimmer of hope for me now that I've started flying Revs?

Don't believe people who state that they've seen me with a quad kite; they can't separate diabolical dream from bitter reality.

(Come on Bab, let's not futilely attempt to confuse people... everyone knows that the Dark Side is the Quad side. But don't be ashamed... darkness is nothing to be embarrassed about. :wink: )
