I find that risk and freedom are similar in my 'system'. When I take risks I seem to express my need for freedom. It's less a need for freedom from convention but more like freedom from my sense of limitation. I always feel limited by just about everything (I can't because...); kids, money, my ex, inexperience, etc. Breaking my sense of limitation is my type of feeling free.

So, I hate bananas.. always have. When I was in elementary school, if a kid at my lunch table had one, I would have to change tables. Buuuut, I keep hearing how everyone says its such fantastic a post-workout/race food and started to wonder if this was just some moron-kid thing I decided I didn't like but which really had no basis in reality (like frog legs). So, I sat there with a peeled (thankyouverymuch) banana, staring at it for like 5 minutes as though it were a venomous snake before I finally got the gumption to try it. Nonononononononono.no.no. I reenacted that scene from Big where Tom Hanks tastes caviar. I am an adventurous eater. Bananas are beyond my limits. 1331 days ago
