By The Skin of My Teeth

“I don’t think I should take things that make me lose my mind.”

“Don’t think of it like that… Think of it as losing your stresses.”

I almost took the plunge. And then my mom called. I swear that woman knows when I’m about to make a stupid decision.

I took four bottles of water and walked to the edge of the desert.

Four days later there was something on the local news about a body being found in the sand not far from where I had stood.

Close call. Thanks, Mum.
