I was born with a special gene that drives my husband nuts.
He calls it my What Iffer!
I am the queen of What If.........in other words my What Iffer is ever so slightly over developed and I know this because my husband Says So.
If you read about me in a high speed chase, you will know it is a lie or I was not driving! I never exceed the speed limit by more than three miles because What If a tire blew out? What if the steering locked? What if one of those slabs of tires that fly off Big Trucks hit the windshield and made me jerk the wheel.
I do not drive behind big trucks carrying logs OR beside a cement mixing truck. I have seen with my own eyes, logs rolling around falling off those trucks and in the news paper a picture of the cement truck on its side on top of a Toyota. This means these are NOT true what ifs, they are TRUE
The only way I will die in an airplane crash is if it falls on my house. I don't fly because, What If I get motion sickness? There is no way to get off. (I do suffer from motion sickness, cars, planes and boats)
When I drive across a long bridge, I put my windows down before I cross it. What If the car went over in the water? (if the car falls in the water and the battery gets wet, the electric windows will not go down, this is a True FACT)
I have a handy little gadget in the side pocket to the driver’s door that will break out glass (available at all automotive stores). (What if you forget to put the windows down and go in the water, you will need it to break out the glass)
I will never fall off of a high building because I will NOT go up on one. What if I fall off, I can't even stand to watch high wire people walking on wire on TV.
When I use the restroom in Wal-Mart, they have clasps on the outside of the doors, with open locks hanging in them. I think What If someone decided to just close that lock, What then?
Elevators? What if it stops between floors OR what if the power goes out? (this did happen to me in the Sears freight elevator, power off, loud screams for help from me)
I don’t stand on the edge of anything, What If the dirt broke off, or the boulder rolled down the hill. what if my feet slipped and I rolled over the edge
And it certainly will NEVER be in the news that I FELL INTO A VOLACANO! I mean get REAL Why would anyone STAND on the lip of a volcano?
I mean talk about WHAT IF! If you don't beleive me about falling in a volcano, READ THIS
PS did I mention I am afraid of the dark? and that my husband often sings to me
The Sky is Falling, The sky is falling
