Prose for Thought – Bold

To boldly go where no man has gone before …

No thanks, I don’t do bold.
I’m a wimp, a coward, a wuss.
I’ve no adventurous spirit, don’t want to be a pioneer.

Great view from the top of that mountain?
Lovely. Show me the photo when you get back.

Adrenaline rush on that thrill ride?
Fantastic. I’ll hold the coats.

Turn up the sound on this action movie?
Sure.Let me lock out the axe murderer first.

Turn out the lights while watching a scary movie?
No problem. I’ll be in the kitchen if you need me, lights blazing.

I don’t do heights or noises or speed or danger or thrilling or intrepid or … well anything really.

So I won’t go boldly if you don’t mind.
I’ll sit here quietly waiting for it all to be over,
Than calm myself with a nice cup of tea.
