Loss of my innocence

A time when i was afraid. Hum??? Let's see there was that time I hide from the police in the shed after Big Brother and his friends terrorized the paperboy with a BB gun. Hey I wasn't going to jail, I'm way to pretty for jail. Or the time BB woke me up out of a dead sleep because he was bleeding profusely from his arm. But that was a whole different kind of scared. Or the time I had to tell my Dad I got yet another speeding ticket. I've had some scary times. Once I had to step in between two very disgruntle guys at a party and talk one of them into putting down the 2x4. But none of that crazy scary I might die today stuff comes anywhere close to the night I was sure would be the end.

I love scary movies. LOVE. But I'm a wimp. I cover my eyes a squeeze them shut till they hurt sometimes. But I LOVE scary movies. My friend says I'm dumb, I say if i don't allow myself to become scared, then what is the point of watching them. HELLO MCFLY! So we watched 30 Days of Night. Now that movie scared the shit out of me. Fugitive not literally or that might have been the scariest moment of my life. There are a few things we all know. A few things that are dare I say set in stone. The #1 thing being. Vampires CAN NOT come into your home uninvited. CAN NOT! Well it seems someone forgot to pass that important information along to these vampires. Because they just jumped through the window and yanked people out by their hair! When this happen my reaction was, "HEY HEY you can't do that! You have to be invited in! What is this crazy shit!"

After the movie was over I ventured out to my car and drove home. While it's only maybe 5 miles to my house I was scared to DEATH. I checked my backseat at every light and flicked the interior light on in my cargo area a few times. When i got home I jumped out of the car ran up the steps and slammed the door shut. I was sure I was going to die! All night I lay in bed thinking, I'm not safe in here, I have two big windows and one is off the porch. Easy access for this new wave of no boundary vampires. They'll get me for sure. I lay there thinking any moment would be the moment the vampire would hurl it's self through my window and yank me out by my hair. I really thought that was it. Before I would have thought "well I'm inside and there's no way in hell I would invite them in so I'm safe". Not anymore. Thanks dumb movie.

Swing over to Mama Kat's and read what the rest of us have to say

I'm glad you didn't talk about the time that you me and Michelle got rear ended in front of Around the Clock... THAT was scary!

I think I will have to continue believing that vampires must be invited in or I would not sleep at night. I believe I will not check out that movie after such a wonderful review!
