Don't take a Pear to Your Sky Dive...

Hola! Have you ever heard of the word game?  No! Not that one. Nooo, not scrabble either.  The word game I'm talking about is the one used in psychology.  You know the one where they give you a trigger word and you're suppose to say other words you'd associate to the word given.  Let's try a sample.  Okay, here is the trigger word:  Baby.  What words do you associate with Baby?  Soft, cute, giggle, smelly, noisy cuddly, lovable, squeezable, kissable...get the picture?   Well, today I had a glimpse of this game when I went to take my dive from the sky.  Let me rewind a little and let the images tell most of the story....

This is something I've always longed to do and was planned for yesterday morning...

You can read about the whole morning here.  Otherwise, here is how I felt yesterday morning...

As you can see, I was feeling cool, calm and collected.  I went through my usual morning routine and
meditated, read some posts from a few of my favorite blogs, responded to a few comments.  It was a good and happy morning.  It became even happier when I discovered PonderWonders (thats my blog) was awarded The Modern Muse Award by Sarah, author of A Cat-Like Curiosity which is one of the blogs listed in my Superdeeduperdee Blogs list.  To quote Sarah, "The Modern Muse award is for those blogs that are continually working to share inspiration throughout blog land! Be it through tutorials, how tos, featuring other bloggers, consistently commenting, etc..."  I am honored and extremely grateful for this award which is proudly displayed in the sidebar. Thanks Sarah!

So, the day was looking good!
I got dressed in my favorite colors
put on my favorite hat of all times

and had lunch!

Then the day started not looking so good any more 
 Like, when I was dressed and ready to go...
I was told I MUST were sneakers! *sad face*

Then My Dive from the Sky
was cancelled because of the wind
and re-scheduled for the next morning
*BIG BIG sad face*

Well eventually I got over it, took off the clothes, got in my fav pj's and waited for the next day.  Which brings me to today. Got outta bed showered, grabbed same outfit neatly folded from the bedroom chair, read fav blogs, responded to comments, no blog awards today, grabbed a biscuit that was left in the oven from the night before, headed out the door and was on my merry way!

Found the small town in Kansas City Missouri
Got lost finding the small town airport so the
sistas and I stretched our legs having some fun!!!
Even sista from New York was there via my smart phone!!!

We did manage to find the airport...Yaaay!!!

Then I met the very nice man who I'll be diving with...

Then here's where the word game began for me
and nice man didn't seem so nice anymore...

Really!!! Because of a fruit?!!! Well, I didn't come this far for nothing!

Does SimplyyMayra get what she's longed for?
Does she get "not so nice man anymore" to be "nice man" again?
Does she get her dream to dive from the sky?
Or should you really not take a Pear to your sky dive?  
What do YOU think? 


  1. Mother!!!! Don't tell Meeeeee he criticized your size???!!!? I must say right now i'm a little bothered, soooooo i'm going to call you to see what happened :(

    1. Evvrrryding aight mahn! No wharrries be hoppy! :D

  2. Um, WTF? What is that supposed to mean? A "pear-shape"? I don't get it. Was he just being nasty, or was there a valid (if not eloquent) reason for his comment? Shame on you (joking!) for doing this two-parter; I want to know what happened!!!

And you're just gonna have to come back to see if he got over himself...does that mean you want to see him somersault??? *scratches head* Anyway, YAAAY! that just means you'll HAVE to come back and visit and I LOVE your visits! Tootles!
