Busy Bee Lauren created a post called "things that scare the crap out of me" last night. It was hilarious. She asked everyone what freaks them out, and so I am carrying it on and letting you all know about my various, random frights...
I am a dreamer. And this time, I don't mean in the Beatles way. I have vivid dreams and even more vivid nightmares. They always feel more like distant memories than anything. And they started when I was baby. At four years old, the first recurring nightmare I ever had involved Grimace, the McDonald's character. I remember every detail of that dream. My siblings and I are playing outside in front of the house. Suddenly, the ground is shaking and we look up to see a huge Grimace walking up our long driveway. He is so big that it feels like an earthquake. We all run into the house and hide any place we can find. John and I choose the blanket closet in the hallway. He crashes into the house and we listen as Grimace attacks our family. Then he opens the door to our closet and just stands there. Right when he lunges for us, I wake up, freaking out. I had that dream constantly as a child. No fun.
The Wizard of Oz.
No matter what I do, this movie will continue to freak me out until the day I die. Everything about it seems off in a creepy way.
Especially those flying monkeys. *shudder*
Give me Wicked on Broadway any day, I love that show! But this movie is probably my least favorite of all time.
It's not so much fear as it is extreme anxiety. I love my teeth. And I want them to be healthy. And that is the only reason why I force myself to the dentist on a regular basis.
More specifically, any (large) body of water where the bottom is too deep for me to see. My imagination runs wild with the kind of creatures living at the bottom. I went on a cruise once and they took us out into the middle of the Caribbean to swim with stingrays. The only way I coped was by having two of my best friends with me. And it was a shallow area. And I took a lot of deep breaths.
What freaks you out most?
