Fly my Kite!

In my head – I thought Kite Flying would be a breeze (no pun intended). The packaging had a label saying “not suitable for children under 36 months,” what it really should have said was “not suitable for under 32 year of age.”

Mr Kite
no kite flying here!

– Kite… $15 from ebay
– Wind… $FREE
– Scenery… $FREE
– 1 idiot flying a kite $PRICELESS!

So this was Emma’s chance to pop my kite flying cherry. She had some flying experience – a few hours under her belt from when she was a child – but never with a stunt kite.

The Kite was bought from ebay (my favourite marketplace, delivered to right to my door) – it was cheap, simple to set up and totally breakable… it took me only a few goes before I had busted part of the kite. Em’s had fun, and some frustration; although, she managed to find more air than I did! It seemed like each time I took control of the reins the kite flew up with incredible speed, turn 180 degrees, locked on Emma as a target and then zoomed back down at breakneck speeds, only to crash into the ground a few feet from her. If anyone was watching they would swear I was doing it on purpose.

In My Opinion: I was expecting a little more out of flying a kite. I honestly didn’t think it would require much skill to keep it up in the air! Who knows, it probably doesn’t… maybe I just suck at it!

Things to consider: You may want to save this kind of date idea for summer – a warm day could have made this a much more pleasurable experience. We did it in the middle of winter (curse you southern hemisphere!) And, buy 2 kites – they’re cheap… if you break one at least you’ve got a spare.

USA – it’s still warm out, grab a kite and play with your sweetie before the cold of Fall hits you! Emma and I are hanging for summer to kick in (only a few months away…) I dare say Emma will want another crack at the kite then!

    What it probably should have said on the package is *not suitable for people under 36 months or over 10 years of age.

    Let’s try again on a warm day with slightly less breeze! I think it will DEFINITELY heighten the experience. (Ha! Geddit? *heighten*… )
