It's nearly Halloween, my favorite holiday
Noticed that a Spirit store had actually opened up around here, so I couldn’t resist checking the place out. It was awesome, with animatronic displays galore. You could sense that most of the people who were there were the type who absolutely adored Halloween. Some kid even hid in one of the displays with a mask on and jumped out at me. That gave me and who I assume were the parents a chuckle.
Picked up a mask to add to my collection as well
This isn’t a replacement for my stitched mask of course. I just liked it.
Anyway, I didn’t make this post just to talk about my seasonal shopping, but seeing all that stuff, all those depictions of monsters and the like just got me thinking about things that used to scare me when I was a kid. Fear works in funny ways especially in the mind of a child. I remember being afraid to go to sleep because I thought that god was going to kill me. I also remember being terrified of mirrors and windows but only late at night. I think I thought that there was something watching me from the window… As for the mirrors, I don’t know, maybe I figured that if a monster was going to attack me from behind, I didn’t want to see it or something
So how about you? Any of you who read this thing, did you used to have any interesting childhood fears like that?
