Have you ever taken a relaxing drive, just driving along on a nice sunny day surrounded by other cars and trucks and such? Then someone in the car yells, "Watch out for that car!!". Well, my immediate response is "What car??". By then, what ever was meant by that dire warning, if it materialized, had evaporated. Yep, that happened to me today and I still don't know what car my passenger meant. Well I guess I got through that crises without a scratch.
I would say that I lived through that old saying, when you remain calm and peaceful when those all around you are screaming with terror, you just may not know the whole story. Sometimes ignorance is bliss. Haven't you heard someone say "what you don't know won't hurt you"? I don't believe that at all. I want to know what is going on around me at all times. In fact, I would prefer if it were possible, to know what is going on everywhere. Of course, if knowing would make me get up out of my rocker/recliner, maybe you could put off telling me until I decide to get up on my own (grin). This reminds of the old joke about the fellow who said, "I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandpa did, not screaming like the other passengers in the car he was driving". Now don't you fall asleep while driving, that would ruin your day and I want you all to have a great day, you hear?
