In my line of work, a little fear is a reasonable thing to hope for. It lubricates the truth, and erodes all good intentions.
Of course, I’m not all that much to be afraid of.
I can’t help it if I drew the teddy bear card when a grizzly would be a better fit.
I have my place in the world, and intend to spend my days with my nose where it belongs.
