Five for Friday~ The Scary Version!

Hey Bloggy Friends!
It's Halloween and what better way to  greet this day 

First, let's thank Doodle Bugs for hosting this weekly randomness party....

I was scrolling through Pinterest the other evening (cause that's what I do when something boring is on TV, which is pretty much all the time) and I saw a pin about things that scare you.
I added that to my list of things to blog about and then realized it was Halloween, so here ya go:

FIVE Random Scary Things (for me)
I am warning you, some of this is pretty scary, spooky, alarming, and you might squeal.....
just sayin'...

The worst scary thing for me is falling from a high place.
You know that dream where you are falling and then suddenly you wake up as you hit the ground...which is really the bed...pretty awful feeling and then you don't want to go back to sleep cause you might keep going in the dream.
Anyway, one day about two years ago I did this:
I know some of you have seen this picture before, but I am sharing it again.
It was actually not scary. It was very different than expected. The falling part was not scary, just cold! I would even do it again!

Next scary thing....spiders...
You know, those sneaky fast ones that run and get away before you can squish them and then you wonder where they are....ughhhhhhh

This was funny until I remembered I have done that...

I am scared of pulling into intersections.
There is always that one stupid car that runs the light and comes out of no where. When my dad was teaching me to drive he actually had me practice pulling up to red lights and waiting for a few seconds before going forward. I promise- this has saved my life several times. So, pause before you go forward, please.

Do you need more words than that?

This movie came out when I was a teenager. I still remember sitting in the theater and hearing that opening Jaws music and seeing the girl in the water at night. Even before she was eaten I knew it was a mistake for me to be there. It was the scariest movie ever.
I still do not go in the ocean.
Course I don't live near an ocean.

So, I tried really hard to think of a fifth thing I am scared of......
so then I went to Pinterest and found this:
Click on it and follow the link to see what kids say!
Of course, a lot of them said, "Monsters!"
I can totally relate to that cause when I was little I used to turn off the light switch at bedtime and then run and leap into bed to keep the monsters under it from grabbing my leg.
Bet you did that, too!

Have a great spooky weekend! Don't let anything scare you!

  4. The Jury is still out on whether I would want to try sky diving or not...awesome picture of you though! I agree with you about the spiders and jaws. I think I first saw it when I was in 6th grade and I can remember being afraid to go swimming in our pool..I know crazy...I thought jaws was going to come out of the drain I am over it now and have even been scuba diving, which I loved. What a fun post!

  5. Not that I am outstandingly brave, but I am not sure what I am afraid of...I don't like snakes but would not say I am afraid of them. I like them just fine in a zoo or cage. I actually love to be scared. Horror and suspense are my favorite genre of movie and book, I love anything paranormal and scifi-ish and I would love to sky dive!
