Being alive is all about taking risks. As someone who values playing it safe, it brings me no pleasure to report this. However, it’s a basic fact that even something as simple as doing a morning coffee run comes with a set of potential dangers as well as that sweet, caffeinated reward.
It’s true, none of us would get anywhere if we spent all our time living under a rock, and not trying to create the opportunities that lead to things happening. Like when people make memes, for example. These silly little images are a golden opportunity to reach others that we might not otherwise, and they usually do that on a hunch, not a certainty. Whether they hit or not is completely up to us, and it’s a privilege that we get to decide that. Memes are risky, in the smallest of ways. It’s cool to think of them that way when we’re looking for excitement.
