one of the scariest days of my life..and my kids call me a wuss..



helicopter rides are not for me.

esp riding w my kids while they kept tipping and telling the pilot to "turn sharper and dive deeper."

after a 45 min ride i survived while they giggled at me all the way home.

i'm not happy.

No way in hell I would ride in a helicopter unless I was dying. And then I'd have to think about it.

Well it doesn't help that the thing is so tiny it looks like you'd barely fit inside.

My wife keeps begging me to go on a helicoptor ride with her over NYC so she can get some great photos. Please tell me that it's hard to take pictures in one? Please?
