H is for Hazard. Beware. That sounds dangerous, doesn’t it? Down right hazardous. Have you negotiated and overcome a difficulty today? Have you saved your skin from unmitigated danger, or have you tripped over a hazard, fallen in a snowbank, filled your shoes with icy water, surrendered and succumbed?
Have you crashed into a self-made hazard, made a quantum error in lifestyle, a mistake, for example, shunning healthy vegetables, and instead, ate nothing but sweets and processed, nutrient-free food? Have you finally tripped over your tongue, a devious hazard in itself, whilst attempting to be suave, dignified and elegant? Slipped on a banana-skin while trying to impress the future mother-in-law, inadvertently creating a new potential hazard in your life? Have you driven into the neighbor’s garbage can?
What is a hazard?
A hazard is merely an unexpected and perhaps dangerous impediment, object, set of circumstances, or event. Plan for the unexpected. Be aware. Keep the eyes open. Plan escape routes and plan for contingencies. Jump fences, ditches and old cop cars. Boldly defeat and avoid hazards. Like the good old boys in the television series, the Dukes of Hazzard. O
ops, no pun intended.. An extra Z’ –that’s one of the hazards of life isn’t it? A writer can certainly trip over an extra ‘z’. That’s why H is for hazard.
Hey, that could be fun. Let’s see if we can fool old Boss Hogg and Sheriff Rosco P Coltrane and jump a few hazards of our own.
Is that Incoming I hear?
