- I was once almost shot in the head ... by a fireplace. A bullet in a burning log went off, and buried itself in the wall just a few inches from my head.
- My head was once almost run over by a truck. I was sliding on my stomach across a two-lane tunnel at the time, my motorcycle skidding merrily along behind me. The truck's rear wheels and my noggin missed each other by an inch or two.
- I was almost paralyzed by a water skiing accident. Water can be very hard if you hit it fast and wrong, and neck vertebrae can be cracked half-way through without paralyzing you.
- I was once in the rear seat of a small plane flying without a filed flight plan into La Guardia/NYC, while the pilot and his friend drank straight whiskey from a bottle. I drank a lot, too, figuring the more I drank, the less the pilot would be able to drink.
- When I was in kindergarten, I was almost smashed to pieces by a giant wave at Point Lobos near Carmel. My mother got a "bad feeling," raced down the rock and grabbed me and my brother out of the way just before the wave hit.
- In college, in the middle of the night, in the middle of a Southern Indiana nowhere, my car skidded on ice, slid across the road, and up on a guardrail. We got out and looked -- finding a deep ravine on the other side of the guardrail and a small part of the car's underside hung up on the guardrail's edge. We had seen no other cars on the road, but less than a minute later, a snow plow came by, pulled us off, and we went merrily on our way.
- I sometimes feel God is watching over me.
Here's my picture of martial discord (at first I read it as "marital discord" -- boy am I relieved!)
