How would you feel?

| | Comments (9)

If your biggest fear on earth was, say, a fear of heights.

And then one day, someone - who knows full well what your fear is and how serious that fear is - misleads you and you end up on a 'plane and when you're 10,000 ft up there (or however high), they suddenly strap you into a parachute and say: "Surprise!" and push you out the door.

Should they really be taken aback if you are less than thrilled and never, EVER want to speak to them again? Would you also be so upset and distressed that you would sob?

And no, the above is all metaphorically speaking. I hate heights, yes, but love flying. Won't go skydiving though.

Can't cope. Hate my life. Wish I could just "Poof!" vanish...

Aw Red :(

I know everyone always says this. But even this will pass.

You're lovely, u're stunning (yes u self deprecating little girl, ur absolutely gorgeous!! ), and u're the wittiest writer I know (yes I don't know many writers, but thats besides the point.)

So as much as you are feeling low now, there are many of us that adore you, even though we havent even met you :) Life can't be that bad when you look at it that way can it :)

Red, sorry to hear you're feeling this way. I'm sending big a big ol' Canadian Bear hug your way in hopes you feel better soon.

Hey, Red. You're not alone on this one. You're not. You're brave as all get out, and why does it take years to get your feet back underneath you, I can't tell you. It does. I don't know where the hell my feet are but they're not underneath me, either. You're doing great. Your way will come. It will.

I'm willing to bet that the Cape winter isn't helping your mood much!

Hope that you feel a little better soon!

about
is a South African girl living in South Africa. That doesn't sound very original, we know, but you might find it remotely interesting when you learn that she has only recently returned to South Africa for the first time after a nine year, one month and two week (non-stop!) stint in the United States where she accidentally became an outlawed alien (also known, especially in immigration circles, as an 'illegal immigrant.' We prefer the term 'outlawed alien' ourselves). During her reversed exile from her homeland, she kept herself occupied by winning this website (but only after shamelessly bribing the judges) and thus being unleashed on the web where she slowly, leisurely became the World's Laziest Blogger; by being a nanny and by attending sci-fi conventions in search of other aliens. In the US, she also made her sailing debut, her international acting debut, tried and failed to learn the piano, and never learned to cook. She is hopelessly addicted to coffee, dogs (especially Labrador Retrievers), how-to books (with a particular fondness for her copy of the Time/Life A - Z Medical Encyclopedia), and she tends to grossly overuse parentheses (we're not kidding) during her attempts at writing, which you may - if you really have masochistic tendencies - subject yourself to by reading the words to the right of this column. If you REALLY and truly STILL want to know more, you can read her C.V. here.
Or you can stalk her send her some love via e-mail at: redsaid[AT]gmail[DOT]com

The Wish List (Because yes, she really does need more how-to books. Honestly!)
