Okay, I know you think of me as fearless and unrattleable (antonym for rattled) (don’t look it up!) but I have to confess to one weakness (I think I have more but we will not discuss them on this post because it has nothing to do with babies with guns).
I’m not particularly proud of this so I’ll have to beg you not to make fun of me.
Pop up books scare the shit out of me!!
They don’t scare me in the “Oh look! Freddy Krueger is about to lick the side of my face and spear my throat!” it’s more the “Don’t wind the jack in the box cuz I can’t take the suspense as to when it’s gonna pop out!” kind of scary.
Needless to say, I avoid them like I do beets. I know it doesn’t make sense okay. I don't need to hear your lip!
The other day, I was relieving the receptionist while she did god knows what, I grabbed a magazine and started flipping thru it WHEN ALL OF A SUDDEN!
Something jumped at me!
And almost hit my face!
I jumped from my chair, hid behind a wall to peek over at the weird hand trying to grab me!! I want to know who came up with this horrible add campaign! Heads will roll people!*
Look how freaky this hand looks!
She's a model so I know she must be beautiful but that hand just looks like an elephant paw (foot?)!
What's next? Hoses that squirt lotion at you when you turn the page? ::shiver:: That would be freaky.
You know who is weird and freaky? Someone over at Humor-Blogs! Guess who and you get a prize!
*I shouldn’t have to say this but people take me too seriously. I’m just kidding about the pop up books scaring the shit out of me. I just thought it would be funny if there was somebody out there who had this phobia.
... Okay, they scare me a lil' bit.
We went to the laundromat today without Andy hitting any cars! Yay!! Also, there was someone who kept trying to take my quarters! Finally I had to sit the 3 year old down and say "Listen! MINE!" then she climbed over my head and ran away. Hey, I had to make an example out of someone.
