There are two questions I love to ask people:
- What did you love to do when you were a kid?
- If you could be a kid again for one day, what would you most want to do?
Here are my answers. If you have a moment, I would love to hear yours!
1. I grew up in Phoenix, and my most favorite thing to do was to spend the day at Big Surf. Big Surf is a water park complete with a giant wave pool, water slides, sandy beaches, and palm trees. The best part was the wave pool, which generated a wave every five minutes or so. At any given time there were approximately three thousand kids in the wave pool, and as soon as we saw a wave coming we would jump on our rafts and paddle like mad in an attempt to catch it and ride it to the “beach.” Hours later, lying in bed at night, I could still feel the rolling of the water underneath me.
2. If I could be a kid again for one day I would go to Big Surf, of course! And I would have a slumber party with my friends, complete with pepperoni pizza, potato chips and onion dip, ice cream, and M&Ms. I would probably still be afraid to go to sleep in case someone stuck my hand in a bowl of warm water.
