The last time I went to Disneyland, a very very long time ago, there were two rides on my mandatory list: Space Mountain and Pirates of the Caribbean. The wait to go on each of those rides was over three hours long. So that was pretty much the whole day. Two rides, and in-between, an overpriced ice cream cone and six breaded bite-sized pieces of chicken.
Yesterday I had an 11:00 a.m. appointment to take my car in. It was an unusually busy day there and there was a line for everything, not to mention the actual car repair, which took two hours. The entire event took four hours. Half the day.
Then in the evening, I went with a friend to an open house at Southwest Institute of Healing Arts, a local holistic health and education center. We arrived at 6:30. It was a good-sized, interesting looking event with vendors, displays and practitioners giving free sample sessions.
As soon as we got there, my friend got in the line for a free polarity energy adjustment. I chose the toe-reading reading line. I had never had a toe-reading before, and frankly, until tonight, I didn’t even know it was a thing. There were six people in front of me in my line.
At 8:00 pm, my friend returned to find me still sitting in there in the toe-reading line. She had just finished having her polarities adjusted and was glowing. She looked really happy, lighter, and said the experience was amazing. I had been sitting in my own line for two hours, but I wasn’t about to get up and leave now. I was up next.
After my free toe reading (also a very nice experience), an hour after that, I was finally ready to go explore – see the rest of the event! But everything was scheduled to close at 9:30, the crowds had thinned, and all the vendors were now packing up, preparing to go home.
I said to my friend, “Today felt like Disneyland.” 12 hours. Two rides
