Talking Boo!! Hahaha

My worst fear is of Pit Bull Dogs! I love all animals But, as a teenager i had a bad experience with my brotherlaws Pit bull, he didnt like me i guess, he ran after me, i got in my car and he was trying to get in and get me. He was foaming at the mouth all over the window biting at it. Luckely i got to my car in time. I never trusted him after that. Since then im scared to death of them. Also, Spiders and snakes and centipedes.

I was hunting once and had came across a gator at the edge of a lake. It saw me first and lunged out of the water at me. Scared the crap out of me I love animals but my wife scares the crap out of me. Ok.....I don't like heights and am claustrophobic. When I was kickboxing I hated wearing head gear. Its that bad.

Unhappy

Living on the streets, I have had a dream all of my life that I lost everything and didn't know anyone, and no one cared!!!!!!!!! It scares me there are people in every town doing it now. Some by choice, most because of sickness of some sort, and some because of someones greed. We need to by American products as much as we can, not many of them left. Anyway that is my fear and I am off my soapbox.

Drowning, suffocation, and fire. I almost drowned last July in Myrtle Beach. If James had not been holding my hand, I am sure I would have. I almost drug him down with me, and he is really strong. It was the most terrifying feeling I have ever had.

If I am sleeping and the blanket or pillow gets near my nose, or if James's arm is an inch away from my nose, I wake up, feeling like I'm going to suffocate. James keeps saying that I am claustrophobic, but I'm not at all. I cannot convince him that feeling like you are going to suffocate is not the same thing. I have never had a problem being closed in small places.

I also have a fear of getting really lost.

okay, I feel pretty good now.


I love heights - I love to go up on my roof and walk around just because I can see more of the city.

I don't mind snakes - they don't usually hurt you, and if it's poisonous, just get away.

I don't care for spiders, but they don't scare me - I must kill at least 2 dozen black widows each year.

Zebras? I love 'em - I've even witnessed them "in love"

Alligators? Never bugged me either...

I dig thunderstorms.

Fingernails on anything? Well, since I have long nails...I'm sure some of you wouldn't want me near a chalkboard.

I love to wear velvet.

I know I have worries about "what ifs", but that's all they are - little worries. They don't bug either, and even death doesn't bug, since we're around it so much (husband works at a cemetary/mortuary). It's not death, but your example of life that shows an example that you should focus on.

and Lutzz - you are hysterical by the way! I loved your response!!!

My biggest fear is promising to cook for a big event and forgetting about it till about hour before hand. It's never happened, but it scares the heck out of me...

I love that. You must just let yourself fall to get the full effect. Its awsome.
