As we hit our stride in this Month of Scares, let’s talk about what scared you the most as a little kid!
I was scared by two very different things as a small Dork. Firstly, when I was about 4 or 5, I firmly believed that our living room (where I wasn’t allowed to play because it was “formal”) was haunted by a vampire who hid behind the couch and would try and catch me as I was going to bed.
Secondly, I was really scared of Darth Vader. Not on the whole, but just this scene:
There was something about the way he emerged from the laser smoke that terrified me to no end. My uncle (who is 10 years older than me) thought it was hilarious and would chase me around wearing the Darth Vader helmet he got for Christmas. Jerk.
So what’s your earliest scare! Let’s talk about it and together, we can get through it.
