Worry warts may be the worst, but sometimes, they turn a corner, similar to a mole, or skin tag.
My mother worried about everything from my brothers jumping off a dock to jumping off a tree in the middle of the night. She even worried about us smoking crack in our treehouse. Strangely, that was thirty years ago when only my brother, Greg, was smart enough to develop a substance making us crazy enough to jump off a really tall tree.
These days, I only worry about my brothers and sisters…….and my wife, and my friends, and their families, and our country, and the world, and the solar eclipse.
Out of respect to my mother, I don’t jump off of trees anymore.
