I'm scared. I'm not often scared.
I have snowboarded. I have dived. Heck, I've even combined the two and gone ice diving (ask me about it sometime). I've given presentations in front of hundreds of people. But I'm now scared.
My god-daughter is coming to stay with me. She is French, 9 years old, and very cute. Her parents are staying in a hotel and she is staying with me. For the weekend. And I don't know her very well. Panic!
Yes, I've bought lots of Christmas presents and games. Yes, I have lunch and dinners planned out. What if she gets bored of me? What if it rains and we have to stay in? What if she burns the place down? What if she doesn't understand my French?
