Sometimes, when you’re small and still busy growing up, people tell you not to do certain things because otherwise Bad Things will happen.
Sometimes, many years later, you do those things anyway, and realise that the world doesn’t actually spontaneously combust, or stop turning or fall on your head.
It’s quite a let down in a way. But it’s a welcome let down. I didn’t want to be responsible for the end of the world 😉
