Daily Prompt: Witness Protection
When you do something scary or stressful — bungee jumping, public speaking, etc — do you prefer to be surrounded by friends or by strangers? Why?

Bungee jumping doesn’t appeal to me. I would love to go kitesurfing. Whenever the opportunity comes my way, I am sure I will go for it. I would love to feel the wind in my hair, as I paraglide over the waves with a power kite to be propelled across the water.
