As Dude Looked Into His Dragon’s Faces He Nearly Shat His Gawd-Damn Pants

Most folks know about courage.

They think it involves acting brave

and such but mostly it comes

down to focus and bowel control.

Thank you, friend.

Barry out.

Today I faced one of my biggest fears. I was totally out of control other than the slight bit of “standing up for myself” I could do.

Yeah, I was afraid. Shaking a little bit even. But I pulled through and afterward experienced a sense of great relief on account of the experience didn’t kill me.

In fact, now that I reflect upon it, it couldn’t have gone better.

Update: since writing this I have been again threatened by my monster. I stood up better the second time but still gave in so as to appear as dead to be left alone. Course, I’m not dead, just a little shale shocked.
