Walking up to the skydiving hangar at the Brunswick County Airport on Oak Island Saturday, I elbowed my boyfriend Cory when I saw a brand new convertible Corvette parked nearby.
“Of course an adrenaline junkie would have a fast car,” I laughed as we moved closer.
Cory beamed. He smiled at the car. He smiled at the planes on the runway. He smiled at me. That day, his 35th birthday, he was more than eager to get inside and mark a life adventure off his bucket list—going skydiving.
While I was excited, I was more than a bit apprehensive.
