many things terrify me.
#1. snakes: they scare me so much that as i googled them image, i broke out in a small sweat and could not bring myself to click on a picture. once i was working in the backyard and saw a snake, which immediately pushed the calm adult button in me, and i ran screaming into the house. not just kinda of screaming, screaming. keats, not knowing why his grown-up mother was sprinting across the yard screaming, decided it would be prudent to follow suit. he was screaming just as loud as me.
#2 kenny roger’s face: i think he died about 5 years ago and is now walking around embalmed.#3. dogs that are not my own: when i was little, my brother’s plastic batman figure somehow landed in the neighbor’s yard, i don’t know all the details but i do remember my brother lying on our couch after being attacked by the neighbor’s saint bernard. i realized then that dogs will kill you, especially my sister’s dog.
#4. the unexplainable:
a: one night at bedtime i saw a dark shadow in the hallway, a very dark shadow. mom? mom!? there was just a darkness in the hall. she explained it was just from her walking down the stairs and walked down them again to show me…….she did not make the shadow.
b: i suddenly woke up one night to find the window shade moving up and down by itself. i froze. i closed my eyes again laying very still thinking i was dreaming. getting the courage to open them, i not only saw the shade moving up and down, but the mask my sister made in school swinging back and forth. i can’t move. i thought and felt an oppressive darkness that i can still feel typing this.
c: my sister told me she woke up and saw the window shade moving up and down and the mask swinging back and forth a few days later….on a different night. i had not told her until that point that the exact same thing had happened to me.
d: the Ouija board: i did not know these were bad. i did not know strange things can happen with them. i was at my friend’s lake cabin when we started using it. a pencil rested in my hand and drew a complete picture without me using my fingers. we told the ‘thing’ it was a liar. the plastic circle in the middle of the triangle popped out and flew across the room smashing into a wall. we ran screaming and did not turn the light out when we went to bed that night. i woke in the middle of the night to find the light out and myself in complete darkness, i was certain my 10 years of life were over.
e: when i am downstairs on the computer i hear footsteps upstairs, this is not odd except i am home alone.
this is why paranormal activity about made me faint.
