A Nous la Anxiety

New Feature!

Sources of Anxiety that Ought to Be a Bit More Common:

1. Fear that if you call up your daughter and say in a grave voice, “You heard about what happened to your sister?” without a preceding no-bodily-harm-in-this-announcement disclaimer, she might become anxious. Of course, this same principle can be applied to many situations—I witnessed this as a child, when a girl scout shrieked at her mother, “My stick was on fire and I moved it near my head and look what happened!!”
