THINGS THAT SCARE YOU
- Something bad happening to Yogi. Almost anything bad makes the list, but I have a super scary Top 5.
- Traumatic brain injury. I had a student that suffered a SERIOUS TBI between her freshman and quite delayed sophomore year in college. She made it back to campus, but she was not even close to the same person. If I could make everyone I love wear a helmet all.the.time, I would do it.
- Childhood sexual abuse
- The dentist office. It’s not just the drill, it’s the whole building and everyone in it.
- Unexpected calls from the doctor/lab after a routine appointment
- The fact that my wife runs long distances alone
- The possibility that Diet Coke and/or spray butter really might kill me
