Day Twenty: a childhood anecdote

When I was a wee lass, and my mom, dad, sister and I were moving home from Saudi Arabia, we had the opportunity to go anywhere in the world before settling back in Canada.
My sister and I chose Disney World.
I think it's because all of the other countries/places we went to were more adult-oriented - Greece, Switzerland, England, Sri Lanka, etc. We didn't have a choice in any of those - but Disney World? It sounded so EXOTIC!
It was not.
Although, I did get to have a boa constrictor around my neck - wish I could find that polaroid of me! It's one of my favourites. However, I did find the two shots below - one of me & Pinocchio (who I had no interest in) and a Polaroid of me, my sister, one of my brothers, and my dad at the Skyway (my mom took it).
Funny thing is, if you were to take a close look at that Polaroid, you'd see 4 people who don't seem to be having a good time. Well, at least my brother looked cute in his short shorts.

this is me with Pinocchio. a family polaroid
that camera my dad is holding? that's my sweet Pentax ME.
the Polaroid that took this shot? my sweet SX70!
(yes, my memories are linked up to the cameras used)

Moral of this story?
Disney World isn't as cool as I thought.
Should've picked Australia or Japan or the Northwest Territories... you get the idea.
with joy,
Caren
p.s. this is a belated entry into the 30 Days Hath November - there are more to come!
