Seven-year-old Katie was thrilled when her parents took her to Disney World for the first time, and she headed straight for Space Mountain. Mom worried that the roller coaster would be too scary for her, but Katie insisted. To her delight, they rode it twice.

The next year, the family returned to the Magic Kingdom, and Katie, now 8, again dragged them to Space Mountain. As they stood in line, Katie was soberly studying the signs that warn about the ride's speed.

Finally she said, “Dad, I don't think I want to go.”

Dad asked her why she would be nervous when she had enjoyed herself last time. Katie said, “This year, I can read.” (Cybersalt Digest)
