July 7, 2013. Getting Lost

Getting lost isn't so fun when you're a kid.
That moment when you turn around and your parent's aren't around in the supermarket. That time when you got too distracted playing you forgot your way home. Terror quickly takes over as you try to maintain your composure, of course getting lost isn't something we naturally enjoy. Specially as a kid, when you are so dependent and know you're doomed on your own.
I'm sure some get a thrill out of getting lost, but I'm sure for most of us, we can only enjoy the idea of getting lost, knowing we are still safe though we do not know exactly where we are or how to get to our destination. Getting lost is only fun when you know you'll be alright, you're just deviating from course, losing a little time, exploring somewhere unplanned. But is that really getting lost? Would we enjoy it if we didn't know if we'd make it to our destination, or even back home?
