You wanna see something *really* scary?…
1. Do you enjoy a good fright?
Not at all.
2. Scariest movie you’ve ever seen
Probably John Carpenter’s version of "The Thing."
3. Bobbing for apples: choose one and discuss:
a) Nothing scary about that! Good wholesome fun.
b) Are you *kidding* me?!? The germs, the germs!
Bleh, bleh and bleh.
4. Real-life phobia
Snakes. I really don’t like the snakes.
5. Favorite "ghost story"
On the other hand, I have enjoyed scaring the be-jeepers out of my boys when small with an enthusiastic reading of Rose Impey’s "The Flat Man."
This may suggest a double standard.
I blame the babysitter who used to chase us around the big, old house my family lived in when I was a very little girl, pretending to be a monster.
Besides, it toughened them.
And it’s a really good book.
