Lauren's Illustrated Displacement of Anxiety Plan**

If, for example, what you fear is swimming in deep water, take all of your money. Put it in a black purse and leave it on the beach.

Dive into that water and swim for the horizon. Your mind will refuse to focus on the fact that you are in water over your head...

but will, instead, be focused on your unattended purse and the people sitting near it.

**This theory is courtesy of the late, great Spalding Gray.



The challenge was to take the top 3 most emailed photos on yahoo and create a hopefully amusing story about the sequence. I reserve the right to refuse a disturbing picture, this includes any pictures of celine dion.

<3Suns> If you keep swimming, you might make it to Cambodia. Or at least Vietnam.
<Kumiho> Hm... overcoming fear by distraction. I'll have to remember that the next time I give blood.
<Carol> I love it, it goes round in a circle...
<ElvisThePelvis> Hmmm....nice thought.
<Hysterical Woman> A different focus then the usual "look at the girlies" captions.
<mypalmike> I love captions that focus on a relatively minor detail in a picture (like the purse). Great!
<guyPaulo> Ditto mike's comment. It's the little details that make a caption good.
<Rolie Polie Olie> I feel so embarassed that Spalding was crippled in this shithole where I live.
<Lauren> I was a big fan of his since the early 80's when he first started his schtick. I will miss him.
<George W. Bush> I think I've earnt my turn. Lauren, I have an opening for a noobile young intern. Got milk?
