A Dangerous Situation


I suppose it depends entirely on who is in danger. Working in health care, I’ve taken care of people who have been in some pretty scary places in their lives. I myself can’t say that I have ever really felt myself in danger. I think the worse of it was when I was almost hit by a truck. I was in college and was pregnant with my daughter. I was walking on campus, crossing the street, when a truck came speeding out of a side parking lot. It screeched to a halt just before plowing into me. It was close enough that when I reached out I could touch it without having to fully extend my arm. The weird thing about it was the strange lack of emotional response. It was like everything went empty. Later, I was angry. But in that moment I felt nothing. I had reached out to touch the truck on impulse and I’m not sure why I did it. I looked up to the driver and could see that he was young and terrified. I smiled and waved at him. Then I went on my way. It wasn’t until later in the day that I felt angry by it. So, yeah. I live a pretty boring life 😛 and it suits me just fine!
