In Toronto right now, there is a popular show that involves horses (sort of an equine Cirque du Soleil). Unfortunately, a performer was injured at a recent performance, and had to be hospitalized.

So I really feel badly that I giggled when they reported he was in "stable condition".
I saw that show, I think.  It was during a high-stress time of my life, that eventually revealed to me that I am both an introvert and have (social and other) anxiety.

I was so tense through the whole show thinking something was going to go wrong...

I think they used that phrase intentionally.  I giggled, too.
