Things We Used to Worry About that Don’t Seem that Bad Anymore

Do you remember just a few short months ago, when the president wasn’t tweeting toward the brink of a civil war (or at least not as explicitly) and somehow—impossible as it may seem—there were other things we worried about? Us too.

Let’s remember some scary things from the very recent past that just don’t hit the fear factor like they used to.

  • Romaine lettuce
  • Vaping
  • Gluten
  • Lupus (it’s never Lupus)
  • Sitting
  • Carbs
  • Crabs
  • Nightshades

Yep, what we wouldn’t give for those halcyon days when the only warnings we got from the CDC were about eating romaine lettuce from certain farms. At least we have our nostalgia to give us comfort, because the sight of National Guard tanks rolling down our street sure doesn’t.
