GET OUT OF MY HEAD.....ALL OF YOU!!!
I took a client out to lunch yesterday and we were talking about this exact topic - Our last meeting I came in on Crutches so of course this one started out with "I see you are better...."- When I said I was bummed that tomorrow's track day was canceled but I am making it up by riding Dirt Bikes, I was given a look like I had a big ole booger hangin out the beak - So, the convo came to the point of "Living vs not living and dyeing inside" kind of thing
Him - Aren't you scared you are going to hurt yourself or even worse....die?
Me - I am more scared to go through life without living at all
Him - You are crazy and have a death wish
Me - Exact Opposite, I have a life wish and feel truly alive when I push it to the edge
Him - Pffft, what's next....SKYDIVING!!!! (said with huge sarcasm)
Me - Maybe after Race Season is over
If you have been riding long enough, we have all had these types of conversations with other people - I just found it funny that I just had this one yesterday and the term "death wish" was used
I think I might go play in traffic on a long board now too - I AM CRAZY AND HAVE A DEATH WISH!!!
