In the spirit of Halloween, today I made up a list of ten things that totally scare me.  These aren’t all necessarily Halloween related, but scare me none the less.

1.  Bad teeth.  Anyone that knows me in real life knows that I won’t even talk to someone with jacked up, missing or filthy teeth.  Yup, I know it’s weird, but it’s absolutely the first thing I notice about someone.  So if I happen to turn around and walk away from you mid-conversation…it’s probably your teeth are creeping me out.

2.  Revolving doors.  I have no logical reason as to why, but I avoid them at all costs.

3.  This Snickers commercial!!

4. Roller coasters.  There is NO amount of money in the universe that could get me on one.  Seriously.

5. Canned corn.  I was probably about 11 or 12 helping my mom cook on Thanksgiving and she opened a can of corn to find a HUGE worm sitting on the top.  Ew.  Needless to say, we went corn-free that year.  I still have that vivid image burned into my brain and to be honest, it crosses my mind every single time I open a can of anything.

6. Talking babies.  As in those E-Trade commericals. It’s just unnatural and NOT cute in any way, shape or form.

7. Mr Rogers “Land of Make-Believe”.  I’m sorry, but those puppets were CREEPY.  Especially Lady Elaine Fairchilde with that creepy mans voice.  Yeesh.

8. Cage fighters.  Imagine what someones mindset must be when they sign up for that?  So, trust me, if I see “Battle Cat” walking my way, I’ll be running in the other direction.

9.  Caves/crawl spaces.  Who knows what’s in there…..ew.

10. Aliens.  Enough said.

And just to clarify, I am not scared of bridges, tunnels, clowns, heights, snakes and I am not claustrophobic.

  1. Yeah – I’ll say it again. That Snickers commercial is down-right creepy! And ewwww to the can/worm incident. I’ll definitely be thinking twice before opening a can! Yuck!

  2. So, it makes two of us, afraid to be on a roller coaster. I went to Disneyland for my Honeymoon and there was this small roller-coaster, and the tourist guide keep telling me that it is harmless, absolutely enjoyable. I got on, as the ride was going up to the highest peak, I start to accumulate my fears, not sure why, as it drops, felt like I didn’t breath and couldn’t scream at all. It is in deed a very short ride but I felt like it has been years. Yes, I know how silly I am but I can’t help it and never go on another ride again.

  3. I hate bad teeth! Gah!

  4. Clowns, puppets and Mr. Rogers are all creepy to me!

  6. Ok, the worm in the canned corn is about the most disgusting thing I have heard! I didn’t care for canned corn before but now there is no way I am ever eating it again!

  8. I just found your blog and love the catchy title! I have to agree that Mr. Rogers super creepy neighbor is terrifying! I am also afraid of birds especially when they fly overhead – anything that can crap on me without warning is beyond my threshold!
