I was afraid of the first grade because it was my first year of real school and separate desks

Once on Christmas Eve, my parents heard me crying in bed. When they asked me why, I replied that I was so excited that it was Christmas the next day that I couldn't fall asleep, and I was afraid that if I didn't, then Santa Claus wouldn't be able to bring me any gift. :cry:

IDK I'm a pretty easy going person :lol: however I did prefer (and still sometimes do) to stay away from scary movies because they gave me nightmares :lol:

:lol: I too, feared the closet monster; especially if I had neglected to close it, because light from cars driving up the street would make it seem that something was moving in nthe closet! :lol:

I was afraid of just about anything that made noise, but the barber's electric clippers really scared me! :p

I'm greatly afraid of air planes. Whenever we go near the air port I kind of feel sick. I've road on over 70-80 air planes...but the last one I rode on over 10 years ago had to make an emergency landing on a runway in St. Louis. The engine started to sputter and the Captain came over the com and told us that a piece of metal from the skin of the engine was stuck inside. At least thats what he was able to see from his position. I never heard anything else about it. I was just kissing ground and getting on a gray hound back to Atlanta. So fear is justified at least...better then dinosaurs lol.

At some time, I was afraid of fans. I mean, big fans behind a grid that make a lot of noise. While I was still a few years old, I had a terrible nightmare where one of the walls of my bedroom was covered of such fans :o hmy: I think I woke up my parents :p

I could trace this fear to a movie I think I saw not long before: the King and the Mocking Bird. There is a huge robot that chases a character away by "venting him off" with a powerful fan in his mouth, the exact same kind that appeared in my nightmare :D .
The real sign that someone has become a fanatic is that he completely loses his sense of humor about some important facet of his life. When humor goes, it means he's lost his perspective.
