Brian was scared of most things. Sharks, kettles whistling, not knowing people’s names, being naked, nameless naked sharks whistling, the list was endless. His life was governed by avoiding fears, but he couldn’t avoid them in his dreams. He often had nightmares about his fears.
One morning as he switched the kettle off just before it boiled to make his tea, he decided enough was enough. He walked into town and stripped off.
“Come and get me!” he shouted to the world.
And the world did, in the form of two policewomen. But it wasn’t so bad, they spent most of their time trying not to laugh at him.
After a short hearing where he was deemed mentally unstable, he decided life wasn’t so scary after all. Brian doesn’t have the dreams anymore and he’s even let the kettle boil once or twice.
I got sent another doodle! This one was from Georgia. Looking at the picture reminded me of how scary this challenge has been in terms of putting my life online. I’m not prone to that, and it did initially feel like I was bare in front of everyone.
