Things I need to remember to be afraid of...

Why is it way more fun to be afraid of totally random, one in a million kind of things. Shark week on the Discovery Channel reminded me that I need to feed that crazy irrational fear of sharks I have. I hope it won't scare me as much as seeing Jaws for the first time. As a little kid, it struck fear into my heart, I avoided baths and showers like the plague, for some reason I couldn't stop visualizing jaws materializing out of the shower head and the faucet.

This morning's paper reminded me that I also need to fear this local serial killer who's on the loose. It's like winning the lottery, except in reverse, if you're in the right place at the right time, then fate will have you struck with a bullet in your head.

If it weren't for the media, life would be boring. Fortunately fearing terrorists, huge sharks, serial killers, North Korea, and plane accidents makes life enjoyable again.

Your post reminded me of when I was scared of taking baths and showers, as well. Mine didn't stem from Jaws though. It came about from reading that Stephen King novel, It. It was about that clown in the sewers. Anyways, thanks for commenting on my blog. I actually read through you entire blog just now. I enjoyed it so I will definitely be back.

Thanks so much!! I can't believe that comment about It! If anything haunted me more than Jaws, I think it was that spider clown.

Yeah, It was a pretty scary movie. I think it had me afraid of spiders from that scene in the end.
