I take risks a lot. In fact, I am taking a risk just being here. In fact, being in HP and talking about certain people or subjects or writing about certain people or subjects will get you in trouble lately!
My whole life has been a risk and I like to do anything different as I get bored so easily so I seem to have been attracted to risky jobs. But if I don't get offline NOW and go and meet my missus I will be risking more than I have ever done before.
I don't like risk at all. That doesn't mean I don't take them; it's just that risks are not something I actively desire. There's always something else that allows me to "conveniently" put myself in a risk-taking position. Examples:
1. Pro rodeo is considered a bit risky, I guess. But I was never in it for the thrill of the ride--just wanted the glory.
2. I have at times deliberately taken on formidable opponents, but only because my self image couldn't take the idea of not standing up to them--you know, bullies of all sorts, i.e. kids in school, doctors, po-lice, government types, etc.
3. Some see my multiple (7) marriages as evidence of risk-taking, but I was always SO SURE, each time...!
I did street race a Suzuki 1400 Intruder against a Harley Sportster in Rapid City, South Dakota, in 1997--86 mph around a hard right turn, shaft drive jump-chattering through the curve, pushing a big windshield with a B on the back--but you didn't hear that here....
