Of course, the other side of fearing getting my foot in there was the curiosity about what would happen if I did.
So THEN I fear that I'll someday foolishly give in to my curiosity.
It's like sticking your finger in a fan... how bad would it hurt...
Makes you want to just do it quickly, just a little bit...
And as they say - curiosity killed the cat.
But you've satisfied the curiosity for me: It hurts.
Now I have no desire to find out, so I'm a step ahead.
