I have this.
I walk down stairs and picture myself toppling down head first.
I drive and know that a quick turn of my wrist can send me hurtling down an embankment.
I use a knife and imagine a slip and loss of digit.
I now know that I’m not the only one. It’s comforting to know that there is an actual phrase connected to this feeling, and that I am not crazy.
…but, merely French. LOL.
