If your gods give you the kindness of mildly injurious but survivable signs & portents, try not to look like you’re ignoring their courtesy.

It’s as if someone said to you, “This is what the danger is like. This is what what’s about to happen to you is like. The Real Danger will be worse. Avoid.” 

And you just went, “…Nah.”

Say thank you and take the hint, or eventually you might stop getting them.
