|The wife with friends|
First stop the San Diego Zoo. We were getting off the tour bus and the people behind us waited for us to get off first. The wife told them to go ahead so she wouldn't be rushed, but they politely insisted. The wife, who was now in panic mode, forgot there was a step down from the seat to the aisle and went down faster than a five dollar hooker. She hit the deck hard and put a nice bruise on her leg from her hip to her knee!
Next it was over to Mr. Toads Wild Ride, and a wild ride it was. There was a line but the wife passed the time by striking up a conversation with everyone within earshot as she is wont to do. We completed the ride without incident and I got up and exited the building. I turned around to ask the wife what she wanted to do next and surprisingly (OK, I wasn't that surprised) she was not behind me. I waited patiently thinking she stopped to talk to someone only to find there was an even better reason for her disappearance. After I stepped out of the car, the wife leaned on the restraining bar to push herself out of the seat. In doing so, she pushed the bar back down into the locked position, trapping her as the car started moving again. I only wish I could have seen the look on her face. They had to stop the whole ride to get her out.

She finally packed up, sat in her seat and promptly began trying to affix the child restraint to her seat belt. She pulled and pushed and twisted and turned all to no avail. Suddenly another rider yelled out "That's just for children!" Undaunted, the wife replied "No, I saw it in the video!" Now a second 'flight attendant' approached and everyone on the ride was staring at us. It was like some freaky dream. We eventually got the seat belt on and the ride began. "Wheeeeeee" she said, swinging her legs back and forth as we took off. Wheeeee indeed. The wife has a way of making a ride more than a ride.
