I sometimes have catastrophic thoughts.
When people raise their wine or champagne glasses for a toast, I always think, "What if they hit the glasses too hard and the glasses break?" Am I the only person who has such useless thoughts?
When I see movies of cars being driven along narrow cliffside roads, I always think that the car
could go careening off the road and down into the valley or ocean below.
When I drive into the four-lane tunnel on Sherman Way, I frequently think that there could be an earthquake at that very moment, covering my car in dirt and cement.
These thoughts don't prevent me from doing anything; they don't restrict my life. They just intervene intermittently into my thinking process.
Well, ok, I do admit to keeping toasts very gentle with wine or champagne glasses. Just the lightest little tap.
