    I just received a tweet, asking me what I'm most afraid of.  I don't know.

    I'll say snakes, bad weather, white sharks, my temper, death.

    What are you the most afraid of?

    Tell us why if you dare.......coolsmile

    Birds and it is a very long story involving my two older sisters and that Alfred Hitchcock movie the birds. A very ugly happening in my life when I was 5 or so.

    Right now I am most afraid of not being able to pay my rent and getting thrown out on the street. And, that is not just a fear, It might become a reality! That's very scarey.

    Next would be death by accident. It's usually a car cash that comes to mind. Choking, or dying in a fire or drowning. I am more worried about how everyone around me would react, other than my death itself. Or catching some incurable disease that kills quick...like in weeks or days.

    I am also afraid of large stingy insects. Bees and wasps make me especially nervous, as when I am stung by them, the sting area becomes swelled like a balloon. I also find large spiders very creepy, but know I can pretty much avoid them. I am very glad I do not live in an area with scorprions. I would never leave the house!

    I am terrified of chicken soup.

    I think it's because I suspect the meat comes from dead chickens. smile
    My dad always tried to reassure me by saying. "That soup ain't even seen a chicken! They just walk a chicken past the soup and the smell is all ya get!"

    I know he was right about the packet stuff. smile

      JFK's comment - without fear we become fodder or food - so to fear those without fear is by no means to revere them - to use its antiquated meaning - but to revere those with fear of what is to be revered (like a grizzly bear's personal space) is nothing to be afraid of - or shall we respect he who treads out the den of the lion without recognition of his title - Kings are sovereign regarding judgements, jugulars and jungle trespassers....JOHN!  I'm afraid of super-delegates smile

      i don't worry about it anymore if i'm alone...i have a system too - i think it makes me feel safer somehow.  when i first installed a sec. system, I kept forgetting about it...for about a week or so, the cat would be let out the door  in the a.m. with the sounds of the alarm going off...he was getting used to the new morning routine of noise!  ha ha

      another time my security alarm was going off while i was sleeping (was alone)...i was not wide awake at all and found myself following the cat from my bedroom through the house into the kitchen with the alarm going off the entire time....then i 'woke up' and  realized that it was actually going off!!!!!!!.....all was okay however....but....i'm glad to know that i at least I won't 'freak out' if it actually goes off when I'm home.....maybe i'm too relaxed????    maybe i don't really need an alarm system after all.......ha ha

        glad every thing was okay, thats what I'm afraid of If I am asleep and don't hear it.  As I am partially deaf and sometimes especially when I am asleep I don't hear things going on.

        Our house almost caught on fire from our car blowing up in the garage when I was a kid, I  slept through the hole thing.
        Even when the fire trucks came out with the sirens on.

        My dad said he couldn't see how I never woke up.  They got me out of bed and carried me outside and I never woke up till the next morning.

      Maybe because they're so UNNATURAL... big hands, big feet, painted on expression, dressed so they obviously stand out... very few clowns are actually "good clowns," and their behavior is bizarre, outside of social norms.
