Stress

My boss is a pretty good guy, but he’s the type who gets stressed easily. I think it’s because he manages to involve himself in virtually every aspect of his company, down to the kind of level of detail which strictly speaking he doesn’t really need to worry about.

Well, on Thursday night he had a heart attack. Just a minor one, he’s recuperating in the hospital now. And it’s funny that with hindsight you can say "oh yeah, well it would happen to him, wouldn’t it." And you suddenly start thinking about your own lifestyle. Maybe you should relax a bit more. Get some more exercise. Not eat so much crappy food.

But then, a few hours pass and the sense of panic dissipates, and you go ahead and eat the hamburger and all the chocolate anyway.
