Writer's Block: Too scary!!

Was there something you were afraid of as a child that just seems silly to you now?
A mummy that would sneak into our house and put chocolate in the washing machine with the whites.

I love the specificity of that.

It was a really disturbing nightmare. Usually followed by one where I was being chased by a giant turkey. The mummy one sort of went away about age 10 but the turkey persisted into adulthood.

Wow...but I can see that. Hmmm, I was never bothered by clowns when I was a kid but I am now.

I don't have any memory of it, but my mom says I used to jump like a cat if crinkly paper was making noise near me. I was and remain scared upon first encountering most clowns and mimes; the French- and Italian-style tragic clowns just make me want to bawl. I never liked dolls either. All my stuffed toys were animals -- bears, lions, rabbits, a skunk (with green eyes, which I still have), a mongoose (I was obsessed with Riki-Tiki-Tavi after my dad read me the story, and with Bagheera), and I liked making them, too, once I got a little older.

The thing under my bed. Really.. I just knew it was there. I'd have dreams of it, and when I awoke, I'd have to take my stuffed animals and arrange them around the edge of my bed to stand guard so it wouldn't get me. I love stuffed animals to this day and have a fleet of them, though they no longer stand guard around the bed. They're just there now if I have a hard day and need to hug something.
