First of all I’d like to say I’ve missed you all. I had an extremely stressfull time lately, and, to make things worse, I came down with the flu. I have mostly recovered from that, but now my best friend got it, so he’s spending his first X-Mas vacation days in bed with 107.
Now, to the actual post according to the prompt:
I haven’t had a nighmare in a VERY long time. Modern media have simply jaded me towards terror, be it drooling zombies out for my brains, a maniac with a hockey-mask wielding a machete or a clown with razor teeth. I live in the safest country in the world (i.e. Germany), so does my core family, and those who live in the States also live in places where nobody locks their doors (e.g. rural Massachussets).
So, I’ll just open all three doors and tell you how I handle the situation
Behind door No 1: Adolf Hitler
Solution: Browning Automatic .50 cal. Yeah, I’m a pacifist, but who wouldn’t?
Behind door No 2: Definitive proof that god exists
Solution: You said it’s never too late to repent
Behind door No 3: Myself under a bridge, frozen to death, with a bottle of hooch half empty/empty
Solution: I’m working on it… wait… uh, no. I am chronically afraid of failure.
This fear of failure has hampered me a good (or bad) deal during my entire life. It’s not unnatural, but somehow, I think my fear is amplified by factors yet to be identified.
See you all for the End of the World!
