Somebody asked me today what my greatest fear was...
I told him: "It is the fear of losing..."
He interrupted me and asked me further: "Hold on, let me guess. Is it your job?"
I sighed, and replied: "Nope..."
He guessed again: "Is it your parents?"
I sobbed, and answered: "Nah..."
He finally asked: "Well, what or who is it?"
I could only cry, as silently as I could, in response.
