Xtreme Space Hopping – a spectator’s sport

Posted on Sunday, June 20, 2010 in Family, Strange and Unusual

The Events Upcoming section of My Facebook page, otherwise known as the ‘wishful thinking’ section, is best left alone for those who have a life.  I ignore most of the invitations, or tick ‘maybe’ just to feel the kick of potential, but every now and then, one event sticks out.

When I heard that a bunch of weirdos were gathering in town to attempt a world record at SpaceHopping I felt I had to be there, if not for the good of humanity alone.  Somebody had to be there to point and laugh otherwise our civilization would surely collapse under such a weight of silliness.

I attached my children to my person and marched in from the wrong end, to meet barriers and folk who didn’t understand the plight of a sweaty lady with a baby and a five-year old stuck to her.  So, I snapped photos and buggered off to lie around in Merrion Square for a while with my homies where I scored a big red SpaceHopper and a bag of Meanies.  Puppychild’s puppy eyes do come in handy when I’m on the scrounge.

I’m sure a big red SpaceHopper will come in handy for something some day!!

  2. Hilarious! I wish I could have been there to poke fun as well.

    All people do here is drink and tear up stuff! :)
