Now normally I'd post some random Photo I had taken saying Happy Halloween. But between the move and the house and work and my other work and more work and the Future Husband's hand... I'm just too lazy right now. lol. That and I haven't seen any creepy crawlies around my house - which is a good thing because I'm tired of spaying stuff to prevent them. ha ha!
Any who, Today, I'm going to tell you the top FIVE things that I'm afraid of. And please share yours as well! I'd love to hear things that your afraid of.
What I'm afraid of:
1.) Clowns. I hate them and they scare the crap out of me. Yes, I did see 'It' by Steven King and sadly at the time that I watched it was when they still had VHS and whoever I rented it from put the first VHS tape in the second box - which means I pretty much watched it backwards. Now that didn't scare me. But clowns still terrify me. I hate them!

2.) Elevators. Now let me explain this one. When I was young - really young my family and I were on vacation in Hawaii. Big beautiful hotel. It was also really busy and the elevator we got on to was packed. I got lost in the shuffle and suddenly I'm the only one remaining. I was too small to reach the buttons and remember having a purse filled with candy and I tried to smack the buttons with it and my M&M's went EVERY where. Come to find out - not only could I not reach the buttons it did get stuck. I didn't know till after. My parents were very upset and probably caused a lot of chaos to the front desk while they tried to figure out what elevator was broke and how to fix the problem. From that day forward. I avoided elevators. I still do actually... ask anyone I work with. I take the stairs. Hey, it's great exercise. ha ha!

3.) Spiders & Bees. Okay correction. I'm not terrified of spiders ANY MORE! I still freak out if one lands on me or something. ha ha!! But I'm not like freaked out to the point of a panic attack - like I would be if I was trapped in a elevator. I got over my fear of spiders by taking pictures of them. Weird I know. Granted looking back... it also made me ignorant to the fact some of the spiders I took pictures of WERE fairly poisonous - but on the mild side I think. I just took pictures of them - not knowing I had captured pictures of a Wolf Spider, a Hobo Spider and a few others that are dangerous. Go figure... But now that I've educated myself on the types of spiders... I just don't take pictures of ANY of them. In fact, if I see one they die now. generally I'd scoop them up and take them outside where they belong. But not after doing my home work on the types that I've un knowingly taken pictures of that were dangerous. The Bees are a given. I'm allergic to them and they freak me out because if you make one Bee angry THEY ALL get angry and I don't know about you but the last thing I want to do is be chased down by a 100 or so Bees.

4.) Getting Lost. Thankfully with today's technology it's hard to get lost. Inless of course your phone is dead or your GPS is VERY out of date. Which could happen. But before the wonders of GPS they had Maps. They didn't help me worth a lick. I couldn't tell you where I'd be on the map if I had tried. I had gotten lost one evening and judging from my surroundings I was NOT in a good location. I locked my car doors and prayed I didn't have a big old Neon light blinking above my car saying I was lost. I didn't want to give anyone the opportunity to do anything. Luckily I had a friend in College - I called her up and she was able to get me safely back home.Photo Credits: Here
5.) Biological Warfare. This one is WAY out there in left field - I'm talking about Chemical Warfare. Could it happen? Yes. Will it happen? I have no idea. This is one of those things that just make you shiver thinking about it. If you've ever sat through a gas chamber - you'd understand. It is NO joke and horrible. Not being able to breath and your skin burning and itching like crazy - and that is just part of it. This dates back to Greek times - when they would coat their arrows with poisons and stuff. The Greeks were also nice enough to poison the drinking water of their enemy's by dumping it in the river that went down stream. From what I can remember from that lecture in High School. So, I'm not sure how true that is. Makes me want to see if Amazon sells gas masks... ha ha!!!
