It used to be that almost* nothing scared me. Ghosts? Naw. Freddie Kruger? Oh, please. Jumping from airplanes? No problem. That creepy little girl from The Ring? Bring it. Not even clowns scare me, and, as it says above: they friggin' scare everyone.
After reading Coraline by Neil Gaiman, my kids are a little freaked out by buttons. But only if they are serving as eyes. Ew. That IS kinda creepy. Can't wait for the movie.
Now that I have kids, I feel like everything makes me nervous, when they are around. Cars. Bad guys. Water. Sharp things. Falling. Illnesses. Fish that bite. I've morphed into the the Be Careful Woman.
It makes me crazy!
What scares you?
*Sharks. I've always been afraid of sharks. Not unreasonable, I think.
