The scariest things…

Some people “scare” easier than others.  And it is funny too, what may scare me, may not scare you.   Aaaaaannnnnndddddd…… our fears change.   Take spiders for instance.   I used to be deathly afraid of them.  I still know lots of people who are.  Now, I can pick one up and look it in the eyes.  They’ll bite you.    Or how about lizards.  I fear them not….  but once I used to.  Flying. Same thing.  Maybe I’m just getting older, and my senses are dulling.  My senses are dulling………..Fact.
Certain movies scare me.  I was watching one tonight, and I got the heebie-jeebies.  Had to turn to The Smurfs.
