You are armed with new knowledge about yourself  and being forewarned really is being forearmed.

Then you will keep telling yourself that it is a figment of my Neuroticism until surprise surprise… You don’t worry anymore.

  2. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it
    to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and
    screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.

    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
