Courage Begins Here

Source

Quick!  You can do it!

James heard Dan’s voice.  He trusted his friend and followed him blindly.  Whatever Dan said was the law.

Dan shifted from foot to foot, his breath coming out quickly.

  “Come on!  We gotta go!  Just do it!”  Dan watched as the backs of the pack of boys disappeared around the corner.

James hesitated.  He heard Dan hiss, “Coward!”


James stared up into Dan’s eyes.  Without breaking contact or even blinking, James took the loosened edge of the band aid.


Rip!

We all been there.

  6. Yep, anticipated pain is usually far worse than the real thing. The longer one hesitates, the bigger one's imagination inflates the problem.

  8. Or you can take my partner's approach and wait until it falls off by itself. Which can take a while...
