Extreme Mortification #1

Mortification comes to English from the Latin root mort, meaning death. We use it to refer to humiliation. Sometimes, I put myself in a situation that evokes the thought: This would be a mortifying way to die. 

One day, I’m going to be overwhelmed by the commanding voice on my GPS. Prepare to turn right . . . turn right in one hundred yards . . . turn right!

In my eagerness to obey the order, I’ll turn immediately, regardless of the oncoming traffic.

It’s going to be a Batesville Casket Company piggyback rig that’s unable to stop.

Mortifying.
