Coronado Bridge San Diego, Bay Bridge, Pacific discussed on Armstrong and Getty


A half of one percent of anxiety about that. Just doesn't even I didn't even know. My kid has. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. It's weird. So anyway, but I picture myself on the bridge to Hawaii starting off being very excited. Hi, Jerry Brown project that I just heard as soon as the bullet trains done, and it's going to cost eight billion to four hundred billion summer, but I can picture myself like being really excited and thinking. Wow. This is amazing Honey yell if you see a whale, you know, and and slowly getting like four hundred miles out in the Pacific thinking over the edge. It's just it's death probably by sharks probably chewed apart by shirks and just slowly going slower and slower and going more and more toward the exact middle of the road till I'm doing ten miles per hour straddling the lane marker right in the middle. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. Yeah. Well, they would have to have some sort of floating rest stop because it'd take your very longtime driving from Miami. To key west is mostly bridge over the oath was going to ask you about that. And it's quite a ways hundred fifty miles or. Yeah. You got the Coronado bridge San Diego. It's a landmark in absolutely gorgeous. I prefer to be in one of the middle lanes the bay bridge, which I'm on interesting. I just never think of that on the other hand people would say to me, why are you worried about getting a shot? It doesn't hurt. Right. I mean, it hurts about as much as mosquito bite Durda. What's interesting is came on late in life. And I have no idea why I don't want to hear that. There are things I'm not afraid of now I could end up being afraid of want that. And you know, I was comfortable with what I am afraid is almost the wrong word or it's quite a good enough word because it's it's a sudden in irrational, deep animal revulsion, it's like the same thing. If you saw a lion charging out of the bushes. It's it's completely involuntary and irrational not as in hunting, you're being irrational. But in terms of being just completely like, brain stem. My youngest son has that every second was life. Oh my God. Which is why he's paralyzed by fear all the time. Yeah. Just there's no control over that. My oldest son just occasionally gets it. But like going over a bridge. Are we going to tip over? No, we're not going to tip over. It's never happened in the history of the world millions of cars Passover bridge. And but I know that that logic doesn't work. So what's the point of even trying? I guess, you know, what it reminds me very much of my neighbor when I was growing up in Chicago land, we know no fences there, no privacy fences. Nobody I know what California's amazing nobody has privacy fence, you stand your backyard. You'll look for yards over you. See your buddy. Dave. And you say how does that work with Dart's precisely my next door? Neighbor fewer dogs when I was a kid. I was about eight or so when my next door neighbors moved out and some new folks moved in actually, they're they're pretty nice people. But they had a big bull mastiff that to an eight year old was the size of a lion. And this thing would charge at you through their backyard into my backyard and stop four feet shorter who and nothing ever happened. Other than that. But yeah, it's it's about the same feeling when one of those irrational animal, phobia, fear, anxiety, thinks comes over sucky. That was very good. Big dark. Our big dog. Bark. I thank you. I had plenty a chance to work on it. Yeah. Freaking dog. Oh, I hated it hated it. Remember its name. The big dog next door. Not. I mean, Bill Clinton either. So have you can they do hypnosis Ernie thing to do to get rid of them? Probably. Yeah. Probably. Yeah. Bet. I'll bet that would work for a lot of people in a lot of ways. What's the and then get your drugs and stuff, but I don't want to make this the Ryan Seacrest or Kelly Ripa show or whatever. But do you have a an executive? We haven't already mentioned that's like that with you. 'cause that's that sucks. The about the only one I can think of is the medical stuff. I don't know if I have another one. But it just an I'll think okay, not you're not gonna get worked up about it. This time you're getting your blood drives not a big deal. It doesn't hurt. You know, it doesn't hurt. And then at some point in just like my body's oh my God. Yeah. Leave makes no logical sense. Well, to some extent, it's it becomes a fear. Fear because it grows in your mind right now. Yeah. I know. I know that's the way it works. But I don't have it for ski lifts are cliffs earning. The other stuff I have when I'm in social situation. He lifts this more or less. What I don't ski. I mean, it's part of it. I just hate it so much. I'd prefer to put my skis on my shoulder and walk up the hill. It take me like four and a half hours that'd be far too exhausted. The ski by the time I got to the top text line is four one five two nine five KFC. I've known some people that public speaking was that level of fear one or more of my kids is struggling with anxiety of various sorts to. It's really it's it's crazy. And there's and we've talked about this before and will continue to. Did people just not talk about it? Now in days gone by earns it way worse than it. You would be in literature or songs or movies or scientists? Something something is in either. It's something about the way we're raising each other or there's plastics are its environmental weed killer. Plas smartphones. Social media screens everywhere never alone with her own thoughts. Could be that could be that. Maybe it's just the lack of quiet time. The amount of quiet time people used to get not that long ago completely different world. Maybe it's that the brain just doesn't get a chance to calm down. We'll they say your quiet time is your neurological filing time when you put everything where it's supposed to be and yesterday, I would've never do that picture. How your desk would be. Yeah. Yesterday. I had roughly zero minutes of that. Whereas, you know, couple generations ago, you would have had I had six hours of quiet time today or twelve hours of quiet time today versus zero you were going to say, well that explains why when Marsha walked in the room you scores off four shots at him. Oh, yeah. I didn't see the pistol. You always carry obviously anxious in social situations were in the web, or when the conversation goes too, much, small talk, and it's like, weather and stuff. That's when I get out. I gotta get out of this room. Really can't I can't put up with me by over not actually discussing anything advancing our knowledge of things. Okay. I'm gonna go. Find someone else to talk some people crave that they love it. I remember at some point this is when I stopped going to these certain kind of ours hanging around certain people remembered, some giant, I don't remember what age I was younger crowd. You know, twenties and thirties or whatever. And I I remember thinking to myself is they were all talking. I thought I can't listen to a conversation about how great Joe Montana was again in my life. Do it. While we stand around and drink beer, I just cannot do it. I'm done with this particular social setting for the rest of my life. Remember the moment. Like a light. Switch. Done. Here. Can't hear this again. Have you.
