I was much too distracted by my heartbroken husband. His car is in the shop. They were replacing an ACU and now the keys won't turn the car on (condensed Dani version). While it was in the shop, someone backed in to it. There's a dent and a scratch or two, but the boy is crushed. You'd think I got hit!
Now back to my real post.
Today at lunch, the girls and I were talking about being scared. I was DEATHLY affraid of being kidnapped as a wee chum. Of everything really. I don't remember having nightmares until one specific story on the news. I don't remember what it was, but immediately after hearing it my nightmares started. Shortly after that, Elizabeth Smart was kidnapped and everyone got scared. My older sister started sleeping on my floor, practically under my bed. She would wake up and say she could hear someone cutting the screen. Extreme, I know. If ever I was out in the front yard and a car would drive up, I would run up to the porch, if not inside. I was a SPAZ!!!
Am I still? ....To a degree. I run into my apartment at night, I lock my doors instantly, and I hold my phone in my hands any time I'm walking- usually with someone's number ready to call. Alright, I'm still scared.
Don't you worry though, I still watch my Criminal Minds. Usually, with one hand over all but a corner of my eye and one ear plugged. It's fine.
What were you scared of as a kid? What are you scared of now? Did you ever get over your fear?
The real reason we watch Criminal Minds... Lovely man.
