If you are a parent, you may be able to relate to this chart a friend emailed to me. I've always been a parent who thinks dramatically. I think I inherited the trait from my mother. I went to college a short 35 miles from my home in the flatlands of Florida. If I was later on a visit home than my mother thought I should be, she was sick with worry that the car had fallen off a cliff. I don't think there is a cliff in all of Florida. The route home crossed a lot of marsh.
