Funny Thing, Memory

You’ll know better next time.

At this point you’ll say there won’t be a next time. You’re still shaking with terror. No way you’re doing it again.

But memory’s a funny thing. Give it a few days. It won’t seem so bad anymore. A couple of weeks on you’ll remember the thrill. It was great, you’ll say to yourself. Yeah, a bit scary, but worth it. That feeling of exhilaration while you’re going down. The shock of the cold water. The adrenaline roaring through your body.

When you stand on top of the cliff, you remember.

Gotta hold your breath.
