Oh my and i thought i was a strange child
when i was little i was terrified of puss in boots, don't know why and the giant in the beanstalk, i had a fisher price record player and would cover my ears whenever he said 'fi fy fo fum'
i also had a great fear of santa and remember one time when my mum wanted me to sit on his knee for a photo, i ran to a nearby butchers and hid behind the counter
mum did eventually get me on his knee but it took a lot of bribing, i was also afraid of clowns, it started one day when mum took me to the circus and the clowns wanted kids to come into the ring with them, they singled me out and kept pointing and saying 'come on little girl' followed by a super creepy laugh, no way was i going down there with them
, they still scare me now
when i was really young we lived in a house that everybody said was haunted. i remember my brother telling me one night he saw a goblin sitting at the coffee table reading a newspaper, the next morning there was an empty cup and paper on the table, he also used to see a ghost of a woman in a blue nightgown, she had a large smile of full white teeth and yellow hair, one night i thought i saw her but i was probably dreaming, i used to get afraid she would grab me and tickle me.
i also used to have scary dreams about the count out of sesami street and dreamt i was walking into the lougeroom with my crayons when he grabbed me and took me back to his castle, mum and dad came to rescue me but they couldn't and i remember dad saying in the dream 'your mother is stronger than you, i am stronger than your mother and the cound is much stronger than me, so we can't help you'
i still don't like the count.
