They couldn’t drag me away… (PV #36)

Original YT playout date: 26 June 2010
Duration: 12:29

The scariest thing I’ve done this year was get in the chair lift in Prague Zoo. It doesn’t stop for anyone. I wasn’t sitting very square in it and the drop was quite a long way to the wire net below.

When they saw me get on it, the lift operators started calling on the name of the second person of the Trinity and His earthly mother, which didn’t bode well.  Anyway, I filmed the whole thing. I supposed the ski lift could drag me away despite their fears that it might not hold, but the wild horses to be found at the top of it couldn’t drag me out of Prague Zoo before closing time, even though the battery was only good for the six small films you have here. I could certainly do another six at least with what’s left to show, but I’ll save that for another time.
