Things I Am Rationally Afraid Of

1. Signing a mortgage during the single worst week possible.

2. Cirrhosis.

3. Looking for love in all the wrong places.

4. Termites.

5. Writing memoirs.

6. Letting my babies grow up to be cowboys.

7. Low-rise jeans

8. My tendency to crave things I find at ABC Carpet & Home

9. Sarah Palin

10. For some unforeseen reason being unable to fully enjoy the glorious experience of Willie tonight at Rockefeller Center (Oh, no, wait. That's categorized under "irrational.")


Blogger O'Reilly said...

Palin makes my top 10 list too. It's the witchcraft thing and the certainty that god is making a way for her. Infallibility has disorienting effect, a faulty premise that leads to regrettable consequences.

I was recommended your book by a friend and I LOVE it!
Are you planning to write another?

I firmly believe that God is making a way for Sarah Palin. But then I believe that God is insane and has it in for me and everything I hold dear.

Doggone it, now, I'm fixin' to hate on Sarah Palin, here, but I've had four too many pints of IPA to make a rational point.

Darn it.

I am rationally afraid of all those things. And bears!

I just finished reading your book. It was witty, candid, both hysterical and sad at times but oh, so human. I loved it. Thank you for sharing your quest for purpose and meaning and doing it with such flair. (You inspired me to write my first comment to a blog.) Your determination and stick-to-a-tism makes you a winner. Congrats on your new house and much happiness in the future.

I was afraid to build a personal website! Luckily for me, I found reviews of drag and drop builders and choose the easiest and still functional builder.

Not if you have a solid lead assignment process backed by a distribution or routing software system suitable for your business. If you have got this first critical step of lead management wrong, then you will be wasting the marketing dollars and your sales team will be whining about the marketing team.premiumdissertation Co UK
