Today’s Topic: 2 Things you should be scared of but are not.
Me!! :D I am my most dangerous enemy (HA!!); I don’t think that anyone is really scared of me. They should be, but they don’t know enough to be.
I have a longer list of things that I am scared of and shouldn’t be than things that I should be, but am not. My list of things I am afraid of and shouldn’t be: being poor, homeless, getting fired, winning the lottery, drinking too much seltzer water, my credit score dropping too low, not getting enough steps, and bed bugs.
Ok. Back on topic. Things I should be scared of but are not:
1) Using too much bug spray. Bugs really like to bite me and I really dislike it. I’m not sure why and I’ve tried everything to become less attractive to them, but nothing has worked. To solve the problem, I spray myself with enough bug spray every time I leave the house that one of my neighbors called me PigPen.
2) Taking too much iron. About two weeks before I am scheduled to donate blood, I start to take iron pills. I started doing this because once I went to donate blood and my iron count was too low to donate. And due to my mental aversion to failing any test, I started supplementing so that I would not fail again. Once or twice, I might have been a little overzealous in my iron intake and had to Google "how much is too much iron to take". Fortunately (or unfortunately for some people around me), I lived and I had good iron count to donate platelets and plasma, so the cycle continues.
