Tuesday Journal Prompt-What Scares You ?
Anyone remember that song called, I don't like spiders and snakes, and that ain't what it takes to love me?? Well, believe me, I hate spiders and snakes. You sure can't make me love you, if you bring them around me, but, you sure will make me scream!! Did anyone see the movie Ben, about the young boy who had a rat as his pet, and best friend? Michael Jackson sang the theme song. My dad took me to see that movie, I had nightmares that night, and many nights after. I truly fear those dirty creatures. Yuck!!! Other fears??? Roaches, fire, and possums. I have a funny story I want to share with you about a possum. When I was ten years old, my mom and I lived alone for a short time. Late one night, I looked out the front door, at our porch. There was the ugliest, weirdest animal I had ever seen. It was staring at me!! I started screaming for my mom, she came running to the front door. I said, mom it is going to get us, it is trying to get in the house. Help me please. Mom did not know what it was either, and she got scared, thinking it might get in our house. So, what did she do?? She called 911, of course!! They sent the police to our house, quickly. When they got there, they asked what the problem was, mom explained our dilemma. After the two policemen quit laughing, they told my mom, it was just a large possum, probably looking for food. The next afternoon, when the school bus dropped me off in front of my house, there was the possum, dead on the road. Our dilemma solved, lol But, I continue to be scared of those ugly monsters.
