Personal Narrative: My Trip To Kings Island

Improved Essays
Yesterday, I took my girls to Kings Island, something that has kept them well busy over the summer. I am not the one to ride rides let alone big roller coasters. I usually am the bag holder while I sit and wait when they jump from one ride to the next. Usually I stand off to the side or find an empty bench, pop out my phone and keep to myself. But I thought this time it would be the perfect opportunity to break the norm and allow me to complete this assignment. So instead keeping to myself I decided to find places to sit or stand where others were around. When I did this I made sure the people I sat by or engaged with were different genders and ages in order to see how people react differently.

The first ride my girls road on was Banshee.

One of my daughters has celiac disease and is gluten free. Fortunately there are a few places in Kings Island that accommodates this diet. One of them being Larosas in the fest house. The only thing is that you have to special order the gluten free pizza and there is usually a long wait. After we placed our order I noticed no one was really in line behind us so I decided to stand by the cashier, which was a guy, probably just old enough to be working there. You could tell he was not enthused to be working at all, something maybe his parents are making him to do. I tried to start a conversation bout celiac disease actually. After I ordered and paid I started talking to him. I said, you know it’s nice that my daughter has options to eat here. And asked him if there are a lot others who order the pizza we did. In return he barely says one word and acts as if he knows nothing about eating gluten free and really what gluten even was. I tried to explain the allergy and his expression was just like ‘oh’. I could tell I wasn’t getting anywhere so decided to just sit down and wait for the …show more content…
Although my youngest is not a ‘baby’ anymore, she still loves riding the carousle. I think it just gives here that kid filling and how much fun it is to be a kid. Of course my older two think it is way too Kiddush for them so they decide to wait with me. As we were waiting I noticed a mom with her two young kids walking by us. She sits down to get herself situated with her youngest who is sitting in the stroller. I would say the boy was about 2 and was just crying his eyes out. It appeared he was ready to eat since I saw his mother grab the diaper bag and start rooting through it for his snack. When she did this I noticed the boy throwing a fit and threw is sippy cup. I immediately went to retrieve it and return it to the kid. The mom saw me to do this and to my surprise was very thankful. You can tell she was very stressed out and just wanted the boy to stop crying. I said I’ve been there done that and pointed to my two oldest who were standing next to me and the one that was waiting for the ride. The mother engaged back and from there we had a long conversation going. Again about kids and also turned into work. It was ironic because her husband happened to be a police officer and had the crazy work hours like me. He was at work and she was the lucky one to entertain the kids that day. Her other child, who was older, happen to find amusement in my two older daughters and before I knew it, my two were laughing and talking to her,

    “Would you guys like something to eat?” “We have lasagna and salad!” I soon interjected with “Unfortunately, I am a vegetarian, but thank you!” Well that didn’t save me this time as they fixed us a meatless one for us! That knot moved from my stomach, but to my throat! Being the spokesperson as usual I stated “it’s fine we’re not hunger.” Once those words left my mouth I knew pain was in my near future. As my peers froze waiting for reassurance, my body froze and my legs became stiff as if I was in quicksand. I wanted to disappear, but unfortunately I couldn’t as my name danced down my spine.…

    I always try and keep a smile on my face and am as cheerful as possible. Many people from my community came for the only real Pizza Hut pizza within thirty miles in any direction. For the most part our only customers were the small town shop and store owners and of course the farmers. The best part of the time they would call in their orders and then pick it up. That is where my first trouble started.…

    Once the food they ordered arrived to the table, I took my fork and enjoyed some spaghetti off the fathers’ plate. I think they were shocked because no one said anything for a moment, so I made my way towards the mother’s plate, but she picked it up and moved it. The father uttered “what the heck”, while the mother started looking around the room as if she was looking for something or someone, and their son was laughing. I decided to take it upon myself to tell them that I was going to sample all their food and then decide what I should order for myself. The boy handed me his plate and said “here you can have mine, I am not that hungry anyway”, the father said “no” and took the plate that the boy gave me away, and the mother said she is going to get the manager.…

    You shook it off, grabbing the menu yourself as Taehyung did the same, and realized you couldn’t pronounce most of the names listed. You cocked your head to the side, noticing there was no price, so you weren’t sure how the two of you would order something cheap, easy, and quick so you could get the lunch date with your parents over with. However, you all managed to order, making small talk as you waited. Mostly your mother asked Taehyung questions, and you sat in nervous silence as he rolled through them with ease. He was never phased, and you were somewhat impressed, but mostly just an anxious mess.…

    Personal Narrative: Sushi

    There was a time when I would eat Sushi every other day. I even had converted many of my family and friends from “never will I ever eat raw fish” to “what time is our lunch sushi arriving, I need my Yellowtail Tuna fix.” I did not always love sushi, in fact, my relationship with sushi started out as fear. Growing up in the inner-city idea and consumption of sushi is taboo. No one ate it, it was never discussed and the idea of consuming raw food was ludicrous in my family. Pretty much all we ate was fried food or foods that were cooked at low temperatures for long periods of time.…

    When we woke up we found ourselves arguing saying “ No, let's get pizza.” and “ We always have pizza! Let's get something new.” We agreed on a pizza, but it was unlike the pizza we generally had, there was no sauce and a miniature amount of cheese. When we reached our part of the city we were congratulated on coming safely. It was my grandma’s house that we stayed in, it was immense, with about 4 rooms and a roof that you could sleep on. There were about 6 people already living there so including us 10.…
