DAILY PROMPT: FRIGHT NIGHT
What’s the thing you’re most scared to do? What would it take to get you to do it?

I’d be pretty scared of going to gaol, I’d have to say. Not that it’s looming on my immediate horizon or ever has been – which just goes to show that the threat of prison has been an effective deterrent to any thoughts I may have had of bank robbery, drug trafficking, murder, mayhem, or similar acts of particular naughtiness. And furthermore, I can’t think of anything that would induce me to do it (short of a prison sentence, which is more a matter of cause and effect than inducement).

There are no doubt a few other scenarios that would produce the odd tingle to the spine: walking alone at night on unlit roads, bungee jumping, swimming in a dangerous surf, encountering the shade of my mother-in-law… But on the whole, I’ve developed and excellent method of dealing with these things. It’s called Avoidance. Works a treat.
