<i><b>Local Teen Dies After Allergic Reaction to Chill Pill</b></i>
My friend tells me that worry is going to kill me one day. Maybe it will. But at least it would be familiar. This "chill out" thing is new. What if I overdose? What if I chill out to the point where I gloss over something I really <i>should</i> worry about?
I mean, come on. It's not like I'm freaking out over nothing. In fact, my friend here is in the exact same situation. We are stranded on an island. Granted, this island is only a few hundred feet from the mainland. Michael Phelps could probably swim back in ten seconds flat, if that. And then there's the fact that at low tide you can actually <i>walk</i> to the mainland, but at this point in time, we are indeed stranded on an island. Well, maybe stranded isn't the best word. I mean, we've only been here for five minutes, and we haven't even tried to swim back yet. And I suppose "large rock" would be a better description than island. We did made it over here just fine, clothes, cooler, and all; but what if that was my very last once of energy? What if I'm using up all my energy right now, worrying? What if there's a hidden riptide? What if it starts to rain? What if we eat all the food in the cooler and I get hungry?
Hey! What was that? Something just hit me in the head. See? I <i>told</i> you this situation could get more serious. Wait. It's only a packet of fruit snacks. Chill pills, you say? Don't mind if I do. Ahhh. Much better.
What do you mean time to back to the shore already? We can't go back now. I was having so much fun.
