Me: Want to learn how to escape a car if it plunges 40 feet off a bridge? A friend just posted it on Facebook.

Rick: It’s never going to happen.

Me: It happens to someone.

Rick: It’s never going to happen.

Me: Tell that to the guy who just plunged 40 feet.

Rick: It’s never going to happen.

Me: So you don’t want to learn how to escape a car if it plunges off a bridge?

Rick: No.

Me: Okay, I’m going to find out and then you better hope you’re with me when it happens.

Rick: Can you tell me one thing – can we use the McDonald’s Happy Meal containers in the backseat as floating devices?

Me: I don’t think so.

Rick: Okay, okay, just tell me the first thing on the list.

Me: “Don’t panic.”

Rick: Seriously?

Me: Seriously. It says, “Don’t Panic.” See, if I hadn’t told you about this – you would have totally panicked and lessened your chance of survival.

Rick: I feel much safer now.

    This reminds me of the moments before I was to step on to an indoor high ropes course to face my fear of heights and what should be at top of my Facebook feed but “Man plunges to his death from mall ropes course.”

    Maybe if he wouldn’t have panicked?
