This is Halloween! Everybody make a scene! (Bonus points: name that movie.)
I figured that since today is Halloween, day of creepy awesomeness, I would tell you about some things that scare the bejesus out of me. Mind you, none of them are rational fears, but I think that makes it even more entertaining. Feel free to chime in with any of your own weird phobias. I bet none of us are alone.
The top of the list has always been SPIDERS. They're sneaky with their too many legs, and they always show up when I'm in the middle of breakfast or trying to take a shower. Or they're on the ceiling. This new house has a lot of ceiling spiders.
This necklace is pretty cute, though. I bet it's because it only has four legs.
Next, we have clowns. I've never liked them, even as a small child when I had to deal with them at birthday parties. And then I read It by Stephen King as a teenager and it was all downhill from there.
Send in the clowns? Only if you want to see me hyperventilate.
Adjacent to clowns we have porcelain dolls and marionettes. Maybe I'm just creeped out by things with painted faces? Whenever I stumble upon one in an antique mall, I feel like it's watching me.
(I don't even want to find a picture. Moving on...)
And finally, elephants. Not products that happen to have an elephant on them, I mean the actual animals themselves. In fact, I tend to like elephant figurines, pictures, etc., but if I have to be around a real one, I get nervous. I remember seeing some kind of zoo presentation in elementary school where the elephant keeper had the thing step on a watermelon and said, "It would do the same thing to your head!" Awesome. Phobia formed.
Tiny elephant, you're not scary. You're full of cuddles. Too bad they're not all like you.
So what phobias do you have? Anything kind of strange? (Admittedly, the elephant thing is totally wonkus.) Anybody afraid of Halloween? That would be a huge bummer. And speaking of the holiday, what do you have planned for tonight? I'll be gleefully handing out candy after class and then watching the finale of Face Off while eating the leftovers. Good times!
