Space Mountain

A seven-year-old little girl was excited when she went to Disney World for the first time. She headed straight for Space Mountain. Her parents were worried that the roller coaster would be too scary for her, but she insisted. To her delight, she rode it twice. The next year the family returned to Magic Kingdom, and the little girl, now eight, again raced to Space Mountain.

As they stood in line, though, the little girl was soberly studying the signs that warn about the ride's speed.

"Dad," she said, "I don't think I want to go."

Her dad asked her why she would be nervous when she had enjoyed herself last time.

She replied, "This year I can read better!"
