Scream If You Wanna Go Faster

fairgroundA lot of people say living with MS is like being on a roller coaster. I’d go further – MS is one big scary fairground.

Ladies and Gentlemen, roll up for a thrilling ride on the MS Ghost Train! Prepare to feel your heart in your mouth as you hurtle round sharp corners, never knowing quite what devilish surprise will jump out at you next.

This train won’t slow down and there’s plenty of shocks galore. Hold on tight! You might be sitting with a friend, but it’s dark and you won’t always be able to see them.

Or try the dodgems! C’mon, you’re good at this already, bumping in to other people, never going in a straight line. You’re teeth might be rattling, but it’s all good fun, right?

Too much for you? Try something gentler. How about a ride on the merry-go-round? Choose your horse wisely though, you’ll be on it for a while, going round and round and round in circles. Hey, just like your life right now! Please do not attempt to dismount while the ride is in motion, we cannot be held responsible.

Now enter the famous Hall of Mirrors! Fall about laughing as you point at yourself! No, not that mirror, the next one. Yes, that’s really you! Well, you’ve certainly put on weight, haven’t you and it’s not all down to the candyfloss.

Or try the grabber machine – you know exactly what this is like! Go on, steer the metal hand, drop it down and grab that teddy. Oh bad luck, you just can’t seem to get a grip on it, eh? Better luck next time!

Why not round off a trip to the MS Fairground with a visit to our resident clairvoyant, Madame ZsaaaBlanko? Tenth generation fortune teller! Mind the curtain and take a seat. She’ll look in to your future right before your very eyes. Everything you ever wanted to know but were too afraid to ask.

Oh. There seems to be a bit of a problem. Your future seems to be rather uncertain at the moment, but Madame can tell you you’ll  shortly be taking a trip and will come into some money. And there’s someone with the initial A who’s really important to you. Or is it D? Maybe S.

Thank you for visiting us. The exit is on the left. What’s that? You can’t leave?

  5. Great way to describe MS….a circus

  6. Oh, that’s clever! And that grabby hand thing: you always seem to pick up the biggest POS item in the bin, IF you get anything, that is…

    Sorry you’re having a bad week(s).
