Scaredy Cat

When I was a child I was scared of my own shadow.  Literally.  I would always pull my clothes over my head really fast so that nobody could sneak up on me while I was momentarily blinded.  I was convinced there were monsters lurking in the shadows of my bedroom at night.  I insisted on "I love you" being the last words spoken between myself and my family members at night lest one of us die in our sleep.  I had a recurring nightmare involving Grandpa Munster.  In short, I was a very anxious little girl with an overactive imagination. 

I was watching a zombie movie in my little house all by myself before I went to bed last night.  Made me wonder when all that irrational fear dissipated.  I did check to make sure the front door was locked before I turned the lights out though.

Crikey...I would never watch a zombie film....evah!!! I don't think I'm a particular scaredy-cat but there are limits!

But then...you did have your bug catcher at hand to catch any errant zombies if they'd escaped from the telly!!

A Christmas Carol used to scare me 'cause of the ghosts. Now I watch weekend-long marathons of horror films - some cheesier than others, granted. Something broke in my brain, I think.

But my dear hunter does help. She's good company. Oddly enough, her name is Little Bit... My life doesn't make much sense. :-P

I think your brain got mended, not broken. ^_^ They are all a load of codswallup but they still scare me...but only while they're on...when they finish I'm fine!

As in she's grown a Little Bit more than anticipated???

I was still afraid of dark basements until I bought this place. Which I swear is haunted. Go fig.
