A List Making Mood

In no particular order, I give you “Things That Scare the Crap Out of Me”

Most are strange. Many are funny. All are true.

Spilled drinks
Gun shots
Public speaking

Being lifted up
Water deeper than my height of 5’6”
Being heard vomiting
Being overheard trimming my nails
School Busses
Exorcism movies
Loud noises
Driving in traffic
Using the last of the water in the cooler and having to change the bottle
Being locked in a closets
Needing to make a turn while a pedestrian is present at the intersection
Lying awake
Getting lost
Unfamiliar environments
Answering the door
Answering the phone
Opening unknown mail
Small Talk
Being overheard using the bathroom
Waking up on the sofa


  1. This list is cracking me up! I have some of the exact same things my 'scare the crap out of me' list.

  2. I too hate crowds; answering the door, phone, and unknown letters. I worry constantly about car wrecks (including turning corners and running over pedestrians. I also fear tax time (even if I think I won't have to pay much.) I just fear the IRS for some reason. We were auditted once and I nearly croaked, but we got money back. I don't like balloons either--I know not why. (I don't like the sound of them or having them pop.)

  3. Sometimes, I just sit there very quietly, hoping whoever rang the doorbell will just go away. The second ring always makes me jump, but by this point, I can't open the door now! So I wait, nearly holding my breath. Not sure why I hold my breath. It's not like they can hear me breathe through the door, into the other room where I'm sitting.

    Number one thing that scares me? Being tied up or my limbs confined somehow. If I can't stretch my arms and legs, regardless if I need to at that precise moment, I freak. I even have a hard time seeing people in movies tied up. I start flapping my arms and kicking my legs. Ask my hubby; he'll confirm this.

  4. Love the being overheard when using the bathroom but I'll finish it and say being overheard when using the bathroom in PUBLIC...Like when you have to go poo and you can't wait til you get home...Ah I hate that!


Do I need to be liked? Absolutely not. I like to be liked. I enjoy being liked. I have to be liked. But it's not like this, compulsive, need, to be liked. Like my need to be praised. - Michael Scott, "The Office"
