Risky

Risky

You know you are old when someone else feels compelled to do something “risky” just because you are going to do it. There we all were—four families from the U.S. who had adopted Guatemalan children—and me. The challenge involved zip-lining over and through Guatemalan rainforests on what appeared to be a pretty thin cable stretched between two mountains. When asked, “Sharyn, are you going to do it?” I said, “Yes,” mostly because I had already paid for it and because I figured it couldn’t be as dangerous as it looked. As a result, a couple of younger women felt compelled to be strapped into harnesses and flung out over the abyss after me. No problem.
