I haven't seen a merry-go-round in a very long time. For some reason all the merry-go-rounds I played on when I was little were removed from all the parks (Probably for safety reasons) so when I saw the merry-go-round at the park by Green Lake I couldn't help but jump on, even if it was covered with water.
Brinley showed me what it means to be brave. I had to wait until the thing had basically stopped before I could jump off but she used this method to slow the thing down.
Then she showed us how fast we should be spinning the merry-go-round for optimal fun.
