If you’ve ever seen a commercial for prescription drugs you are aware of the term, “side effects may include.” The commercial spends 20 seconds covering the many reasons why we should ask our doctor about their product. But the last 10 seconds feature the phrase “side effects may include” and then a laundry list of ridiculous things that might happen when starting the prescription. Many times the side effects outweigh anything that can be helped by the drug.
A similar thing happens in other aspects of our lives. In order to help, I will be offering 10 seconds of warning in a new segment called “Side Effects May Include…”.
When Trying New Things, Side Effects May Include…
– Chronic swelling of the brain, aka, learning.
– Abnormal ability to find new hobbies.
– Unusual acts of failure, only to get back up again.
– Increased risk of a start attack, aka, starting something you’ve never done before.
– Decreased appetite for a bunch of stuff you now know you don’t like to do.
– Strange tendency to make friends in the middle of nowhere.
– Uncontrollable urge to try more things.
– Unstoppable shrinking of things left to do on your bucket list.
– Increased ability to make your actual life better than your Facebook page.
– Strange tendency to finish what you started
– Plummeting of constant loneliness.
