“You’re not supposed to tell someone not to freak out, those words alone cause them to freak out.”
Taking Chances Molly McAdams
..and suddenly you're doubly aware of your pulse hammering at the side of your neck and millions of possibilities flash through your head so quickly you barely have time to decide which is worse, your throat closes up and you're torn in between wanting to know and staying in blissful ignorance.
But you find your voice in the end and asks anyway.
And that's why,
curiosity kills the cat.
