As one of the Nervous Ones, there is a cloud of fear-causing things floating in my brain and coating each and every neuron with a fine mist of anxiety at all times. Some of the culprits, like death, are persistent. Others, like whatever disease is currently making news with hyperbolic headlines, come and go on an hourly basis.
Below is a list of things that currently scare me, as of 4:00 pm today.
20. An EMP or gamma burst that destroys our electrical grid. Do I have a go bag? Do I need a go bag? How long would a go bag even keep me alive, anyway.
4. This weird feeling in my esophagus that I’ve had since lunch. I had a smoothie (which is sort of unlike me), and that whole general area has felt a little unpleasant ever since. It’s probably nothing but what if it’s something, you know?
