More Bounce Than A Trampoline

It’s hard to justify buying a trampoline as an adult. There are so many other things that seem more worthy or more necessary, like food and shelter, but is there a better feeling than the one you get when you leap into the air, letting gravity take its course before briefly touching the surface and springing back higher than before?

There’s nothing quite like that winning feeling. Continue reading Taking Care of Business
