Naming of Names part 2

27 July, 2010 Leave a comment

I am at Splashdown in sunny Poole, Dorset, on England’s south coast.

I’ve climbed to the top-most water flume to have a go at The Screamer.

A group of german school children are ahead of me and behind me in the queue.

My turn comes.

I swipe my pass and settle into position. I watch the red light and wait with anticipation for amber, then green.

Suddenly, from nowhere, a chant goes up. “Jesus! Jesus! Jesus!…” the german kids begin to shout.

I see the green light.

I turn. I bless them.

And I dive down the chute.
