Cats / (Ir)rational Fears

And the decades disappear like sinking ships,
But we perservere, God gives us hope,
But we still fear what we don’t know.

A Dustland Fairytale, The Killers

One of the nicest feelings in the world is to have a cat come up to you and rub itself against your leg. If you are lucky, it may even wind it’s body snugly around you.

Because cats always seem so aloof, I am ridiculously delighted when they show even an ounce of affection.

This is why playing hard to get works.

When I was younger, I had an irrational fear of dying before I can read all the books I want to read.

When I am older, I had an irrational fear of the lift door closing on me.

Both are as likely to happen and both will likely happen.

In that case, why are they irrational?

  1. Why are they irrational? Sounds like both are realistic, healthy fears. I fear clowns and the crushing reality that the infinite can not be fathomed. That is irrational.
