    Phobias

    Since it's Halloween Month, I wanna know what are you truly afraid of?

    Spiders and looking out of a window when it's dark outside and seeing a face peering back at me.

    Drowning from a sinking boat.

    Heights.

    Electrocution from being hit by lightning.

    Apparently I'm a big scaredy cat.

    I'm a bit claustrophobic and have a fear of drowning...which got much worse after my lung collapsed.

    Forgot to add that, specifically if it's a boat sinking. *shudder*

    Oh and getting electrocuted.

    Light beer. Oh the horror!


    Actually, heights. Roofing a one-story would be ok. That's about my limit.

    Sinking a boat isn't all that bad. Bobbing around in the water for 3 hours afterwards is pretty miserable though..

    Being trapped in a tight space and not being able to get out. Which is odd because when I was a little kid I thought it was fun to find the smallest tightest placed that I could hide in.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    I like electrocution....it feels so good when it stops.

    I have a healthy fear of me. Whenever I decided to run the show, it usually ends up in disaster.

    The thought of Chipcom and Couch breeding or spawning. Their offspring would terrify me.

    That's why your wife never told you about her days hanging out with Couch and I, at band camp.

    I'm good swimmer and never boat on anything I can't swim across and you get used to being electrocuted after awhile.
