Did something terrible happen to you? "I’m a frayed knot"... Friday 5....
1. What’s the scariest movie you’ve seen?
When I was a little kid, The Haunting scared both my sister and I. This movie came out in 1963. There wasn't much blood or gore. A group of people are recruited by a scientist to spend time at "Hill House" in New England. Stars Julie Harris. Directed by Robert Wise, whose next move was The Sound of Music.
Runner-up: Jaws... the Steven Spielberg movie from 1975.
2. What most recently startled you?
My bank account!
3. What’s something in your residence that’s frightening?
Nothing really except for the possibility of fire or a 6.0 and higher earthquake. Otherwise we have good security in our building.
4. What kinds of social settings cause you anxiety?
Mostly group settings, parties. Never liked them. I'm not a good mingler. I'm a better observer at these things. For the most part I try to avoid these whenever possible.
5. What’s something you are no longer afraid of?
Death. Came close once. Read up on it, and it doesn't sound too bad, as long as it is not violent and painful. I would not want to die in a plane or car crash, drown in the ocean or be murdered. It's mostly the process. Hopefully once that happens, we can all go to a good place.
