“You can’t be that kid standing at the top of the waterslide, overthinking it. You have to go down the chute.”
From The Old Blog, November 25, 2014:
I really like Tina Fey. That might be the reason I was inclined to pick this quotation.
I also really enjoy waterslides, especially those ones that you go down on inner tubes and they have all the little splash pools along the way. I don’t ever remember being “that Kid” who got to the top of the slide and was afraid to go down. I always embraced the moment and I’d get set up as soon as the last person went down: I’d grab the bar or the sides of the jets and prepare to propel myself down the first dip as soon as I got the okay from the disgruntled pool worker. There must have been a time, however, when I was a little scared, or unsure, or hesitant. I must have been very young though – because I don’t remember it. If it did happen, I was young, and it was all new. I’m allowed to be uncertain when something is new, right?
I don’t feel like talking all deep and philosophical today. I am just happy to see that I had (maybe) a sense of humour when I picked out all these quotations. I still love Tina Fey. Over the summer I read her book, Bossypants, and I loved it. I have tried to start watching 30 Rock, just because of her, and while I enjoy the show, I’ve just been too busy and tired lately. I have a much greater appreciation for the person and the artist that is Tina Fey. Let’s just leave it at that for today.
Tina Fey is awesome. She makes me laugh, and I need a little more of that in my life!
