THE FRIGHTENING

Thanks to Jack over at his shack for inspiring this foray into the fearful.

A short list in no particular order, from the no-brainer serious ones to the funnier, more tongue-in-cheek entries, of things that frighten me...
  • The Shining
  • when my friend bit my face right after we saw Silence of the Lambs
  • that one photo over at JDate (you ladies know the one I mean)
  • Britney Spears' wedding photos
  • crashing airplanes (blame 9/11, that plane that crashed into a Queens neighborhood, and Donnie Darko)
  • the morning I woke up with curly hair (it's straight, usually--oh the horror!)
  • that I'll carry a credit card debt forever
  • walking from the subway to my apartment at 3:30 am on a Saturday night because the boys I was with didn't walk me home
  • slow dances at weddings
  • that I'll never have a wedding
  • that Scream mask
  • that I'll run out of ideas for my column
  • that something bad will happen to my brothers, parents or friends
  • finding a hair in food I didn't make
  • Ben Affleck's career
  • that by the time I get married, I won't be able to have children
  • bad spelling
  • that this blog will crash and I'll lose all the creative efforts I've logged since February
  • getting trapped on the subway during a blackout (check)
  • that something will happen to me while I'm without health insurance
  • that the family members of the mice that were in my old apartment seven years ago will track me down in my newer apartment and perpetrate a plot of rodential revenge
  • Macaulay Culkin
  • Renee Zellweger's scrunchy eyes
  • that I'll never achieve the fame and happiness I deserve
  • that I'll achieve the fame and happiness I deserve
There are probably more. Some I won't cop to in print or to myself. But these are the ones on my mind today...even if it's already TMI.

Share with me, won't you? What scares the bejeezus out of you?

S'funny but about 3 weeks ago I had a dream that the Internet disappeared and I lost all my blogs and...more. So, I woke up immediately afterwards and decided to print all my entries, and I did. This explains why there's a big grey binder in my room...
Scrunchy eyes scare me too, and don't worry - you will have a wedding.

Those mice memories still haunt me too (squeak, squeak...SNAP...silence). Perhaps any surviving family members have made their way to another 4th floor walk-up on the Upper West Side, thus avoiding both of our abodes.
