Daily Prompt: “When you do something scary or stressful — bungee jumping, public speaking, etc. — do you prefer to be surrounded by friends or by strangers? Why?”
If by some miracle I found that I was able to take time away from ordinary day in and day out routine stress — single parenting hormonally challenged teenagers, employment by the quintessential “man”, living through yet another abysmal midwest winter in a money pit of an old house — to knock some kind of new untested scary stress off my bucket list, I would without a doubt refrain from including any friend or family member who might attempt to act as the voice of reason by talking me down off the ledge…
What qualifies as new untested scary stress? Anything that takes me out of my comfort zone would qualify…but what comfort zone?
