Do you have that little voice in your head that sometimes tell you not to do things? I’ve got one, and it’s remarkably good at cautioning me to avoid doing stuff that is likely to get me in trouble. But unfortunately, I am remarkably inclined to ignore that little voice of reason and charge right on ahead with my foolish activity regardless.

My latest bout of “I knew I shouldn’t have done that” occurred last Sunday morning when I launched my lake boat at the ramp in the backyard. All would have been fine, except that it’s been raining a lot lately. Now, everybody knows that it’s been really rainy recently, including me. So when the truck started to bog down in a low spot in the yard on my way to the ramp Sunday morning, my little voice of reason dutifully kicked in: “All that rain has made things too soggy. You probably shouldn’t keep going. Even if you can get the boat launched, you’ll never be able to pull the rig up the ramp and out of there.”
