Do you fear Wasp’s? They are miniature flying dragons you know? Out terrizing society and fools like me… They like to come come fly down and land in your pool while your swimming to cool off for a bit.. What happens? RUN! (swim fast)
Yes folks..Wasp are scary stuff..
So what’s it all about? I thought I’d take a look at it.. Ya know? Just to try and discover exactly what the deal is. I found a Video clip that explains it…Well, sort of….
HEY! The below video don’t werk? HUH?
Sure man…. Sounds good to me.. I assume he is some kind of wasp counselor… He says it’s “learned behavior and that it can be “unlearned” Hmmm?
The problem remains… I’m still learning to fear them!
Wasp Fearsome Memories
I remember a neghbor kid swatting at some wasp. Fighting those flying dragons. They came buzzing about and one stung me right on the face. I haven’t been the same since. She apoligized for getting me stung… Of course I forgave her… But the Wasp…. He still haunts me.
Wasp in The Car
Isn’t it fun when your sitting in your car at a stop light and one comes flying in your car just as the light turns green. You hear it’s evil buzzing..
That’s when the panic starts.
It’s hard to drive down the road when your under attack. I wonder how many wrecks those demons have caused.
And the pain they inflect on a guy. The Pink Floyd song “Comfortably Numb” always had meaning for me with the lyric…”My hands felt just like two balloons” That cat must have been stung with both hands…OH the HUMANITY!
I like talking about addiction.. first of all, let’s clear up the difference between, addiction, and chemical dependency.
Remember, you can be addicted to good things as well as bad things. The real trick is realizing if your addiction is self-destructive, self-defeating, or not! for instance addicted to fishing, raising horses, hobbies, music, may or may not be a bad thing.. however, obesity, obsessive behavior, about anything can be self-destructive.
Obesity, is like a dog chasing his tail, you have low self-esteem, and it causes you to over eat, which causes you lower self-esteem, and the solution is eat.. no end without an intervention. Chemical dependency.. is very similar, but different. You lack something,(dopamine) that lets you feel good about yourself!!
Alcohol, and other similar drugs produce a “artificial” dopamine that gives you the sensation of dopamine.. a fantasy feel good… alcohol, is the most common because it is more readilly avaliable and acceptable.
Cocaine, meth, and certain prescription drugs produce the same effect but have much more damaging effects sometimes permanent!.. and have a much more demanding requirement for more, more, more..
It is amazing to me.. why anyone would ever do cocaine, or heroine, the first time!! Knowing it is the most addictive drugs on the planet@!! but, there are plenty of addicts with that going on.. I have to conclude that their self-esteem was extremely low in order to try it the first time??
Well, any way you look at it, chemical dependency is always self-defeating, self-destructive thinking and behaviour.. I would certainly be better off without the dependence on a drug.. (pain pill, anxiety pill, alcohol, whatever) I will stop for now.. to be continued
