Have you ever known the joy of going to Six Flags? I remember when I went for the first time. I was 5 or 6, and my mom and dad took me. It was great. I had a short set on and tons of energy, and I was ready to go.
Somehow, this exuberance at the mention of Six Flags has changed in the last 20 years. I'm taking my kids to Six Flags today. The fun begins at 7AM on a SATURDAY. Why, why did I sign on for this?!! Six Flags is synonymous with "sunburn" and "dog tired" and "expense" and "having a student get in trouble with security."
Oh, how my innocence has been shattered. Who ever knew Six Flags was gonna be work?
