Is she not the cutest?!We also went to the fair with Amy and Nick. Smallest. fair. ever. But did I mention there was a hypnotist? Somehow I got sucked into going on stage with a group of volunteers to be hypnotized. I really don't believe in this stuff so I thought I'd just sit up there looking like an idiot. Well, I looked like an idiot but I wasn't just sitting the whole time.... The hypnotist truly had me so relaxed that I didn't care if the audience watched me pretend to be a ballerina, or crack up over the "funniest movie I've ever seen in my life" (really, I was crying from laughing so hard), or be the star of the show and shaking every one's hands and thanking them for coming to see me! But there were some things I refused to do like play an instrument in the band (I just sat there half asleep instead), or milk the cow. Seriously, no thank you! I blame my total relaxation on the rough night I had with Mia :)
It was so strange though, some kids were totally passed out! I was so incredibly relaxed but I never lost consciousness. One kid was totally out, woke up to do what the hypnotist told him to do, then she tried to sit him on the chair next to me and lay him on my lap when he just totally fell to the floor instead. I totally reacted and tried to catch him when she touched my shoulder and told me to go to sleep... so I fell onto the girl sitting next to me and I was as relaxed as if I was asleep. SO WEIRD! So I kinda believe that if you choose to be relaxed enough, you can be hypnotized! But I also believe you have total control over your sub conscious and you won't do anything you won't want to do. Who has been hypnotized before? I'd love to hear your experience!
It's always a great weekend with the Brinkerhoff's! We are spoiled with good food, fun and lots of love!
