Vertiginous 

There's a horseshoe-shaped footbridge not far from here. As the bridge rises up on each side of Stirling Highway, the road slopes down, so the bridge isn't as long or steep as you might expect it would need to be. With a few minutes to wait for a bus today, I decided I'd walk over the bridge. The railing isn't very high, and for some reason this worried me. At the first curve I started getting edgy and by the time I reached the middle I wanted to sit down so that I didn't spontaneously fall over the inside railing (which seemed somehow lower than the outside railing). I decided I didn't need to cross this particular bridge just because I'd come to it, so I didn't. Maybe another time.
