I Need This: An Indoor Slide

After a week in Orlando with family, visiting theme parks and riding roller coasters, I realized I truly am still a kid at heart - and hope to always be. There is a time and a place for everything, of course, but its important to have fun in life and to find the joy and silliness in every day, ordinary things.

Like the way in which your home is designed, for example. When I was younger, a friend and I used to draw our dream houses that we would have when we grew up. Fantasy homes complete with underground tunnels, helicopter landing pads on the roof, walls made of candy, and anything else a child's mind can conceive of as a decorating plan. These plans always inevitably involved a slide - usually a twisty one - somewhere in the house - usually in place of stairs.

I had forgotten about my childhood dreams of having giant slides in my house until I started to run across actual homes designed with slides indoors...a completely brilliant idea if you ask me. Whether you have kids or not...
Couldn't you imagine how delightful it would be to just slide down lazily on your bottom instead of trudging down the stairs wobbly and sleepy in the mornings? Or if you are in a hurry, getting out of the house, get a running start and shoot down the slide and out the door.
That's what I'm talkin' about! This would bring some fun and excitement to your daily routine, no?
I love how this slide is accessed through a hole in the floor - what fun! Seriously, I wouldn't even need kids to get slides in my house, if I could. I would be an out and proud "sliding adult".
