Take my word for it; this picture isn’t worth a thousand words.

Nothing can translate the heart-pounding sensation of sitting 103 floors up from the ground with only an inch-and-a-half of glass separating you from a 1,353 foot plummet back to earth.

My sister and I make it look easy sitting there in the above shot, but this was actually our second venture out onto the deck.

The first time I literally crawled out on hands and knees, palms sweating and my heart pounding hard enough to drive a nail.

When the nerve to stand up finally arrived my body’s adrenalin was pumping so hard my legs were shaking.

I know, you think I’m a wuss, but don’t hate until you’ve been out there yourself!

Believe me, if you think watching Aaron Heilman pitch for the Cubs is nerve wracking, try taking the Willis leap of faith!
