Diving into the deep end?

This is Day 4 of the First Annual 10 Days of Heat writing challenge hosted by P. J. at A ‘lil HooHaa. Today's prompt is Diving into the deep end. Please join me in checking out the other hot stories.


Nope, not me!
Unlike going off the deep end, diving into the deep end is entirely within your control. Control being the key word here. I like to be in control of my circumstances, and I am not a risk-taker, so there are a number of things you won't find me doing.

Among them are diving into any body of water, or jumping out of a perfectly good airplane (or boat), unless of course doing so is significantly less dangerous than remaining where I am. In which case I will likely expire from fear anyway.

And should you ever find me doing any of the above-mentioned things without extenuating circumstances, you will know that I have, indeed, gone off the deep end.

  1. Hi Linda - I had to do that once - and only once ... I had nightmares for a long time after ... I did resurface - obviously! It was on a walk in South Africa - about 30 of us out for a 'hike' along and down a river - with a jump into a gorge ... others did it -there was no way back ... I wasn't pushed thankfully managed to jump myself off.

    Cheers Hilary

    1. I would have been beyond terrified. Would have probably backtracked all the way by myself...if that were possible. Thankfully you were okay.

  2. I'm with you, Linda. I can't imagine why anyone would opt to do that.. my older son included. Who raised that daredevil? ;)

    1. The word crazy comes to mind. Just the thought terrifies me. I guess you did a good job raising him to be his own person. How have you been?

    2. I'm okay, thanks. I wish I had more time open for blogging but alas...

      How are things in your own world? :)

  3. that sounds just like me. I wouldn't do anything extreme unless my life depends on it. funny thing about humans - sometimes we do the things we fear just to remove the fear and sometimes we just can't do it. I'm pretty sure I won't be jumping off cliffs or any high places any time soon.

    have a lovely day.

    1. It is just not in me to do something like that. Boring...maybe, but better safe than sorry I always say.

  4. I hear you, Linda. No bungee jumping or parachuting for this girl, either. I'm like WHY would I do this???

  5. I would love to do crazy things like this in life but I don't think I ever will. I have the same fear as you if I even dare convince myself to visit a place like this I think in the end I'll chicken out.
