What’s the worst that could happen? I double-dog dare you. You’re not chicken, are you?
The words that come before we do something stupid.
Ever been there? I think we all have. I know I’ve uttered those words or accepted the challenge given.
And sometimes they ended with me doing something dumb.
One time I was challenged to swim out to a no-swim buoy in Lake Michigan. Big mistake.
It was dumb and I almost didn’t make it back to shore.
Then there was the time I turned down an assistant manager position. Only to wind up fired from my job.
When these things were happening, it seemed like I was doing dumb things. Not making wise choices.
The swimming incident most likely wasn’t the wisest choice I could have made. It almost cost me my life.
