I am resisting the urge right now to make any references to ghosts, haunted houses, scary movies, and general creep-a-delic experiences. This week, Emily of The Waiting suggested we tackle the subject of “fear” for our Remember the Time Blog Hop. Naturally, I was down for that. First of all, I have a hard time denying Emily anything. I mean, have you seen her? She’s adorable. I’ve never met her in real life, but I imagine that she smells like if pumpkin spice lattes, barbeque, and Snuggle fabric softener came together to create a Super Fragrance. Second of all, fear and I are kind of best buds. I love all things scary. And we are currently in the month where I can let my macabre musing fly and still have people think I’m normal.
But then Emily went ahead and squashed my dreams: “I am adding a note in it for this week’s participants to save their Halloween stories for the week of Halloween since I think it would be tons of fun to hear great Halloween stories then. ;D”
So for this week’s RTT Blog Hop, share your stories about dumb old regular fear. Like the time you were afraid to tell your parents you wrecked the car. Or the time you thought you had the Ebola virus but it turned out you were just one of those kids who always gets bloody noses for no reason. Or the time your mom hired Barney the Dinosaur to come to your birthday, but you ended up having an insane fear of people in giant character costumes. Or the time you wanted to speak out against the popular girl because hey, maybe I wanted to write about scary Halloween stuff this week and who put you in charge of the blogosphere? …but then you knew if you did you’d end up blogging in the same loser circles as the spammers and the guy who simply posts pictures of what he eats for dinner every night. You know, THAT kind of fear. Just not Halloween-type fear. Because apparently we’re doing that LATER.
After you write your piece, NOT about Halloween…about another kind of fear, make sure to check back here or at The Waiting on Thursday to link up with us! Nothing about it will be spooky. Absolutely, depressingly nothing.
