Halloween Friday Five

1. Do you enjoy a good fright?
Not so much an actual REAL fright, but a good vicarious fright in a scary book or movie, yes.

2. Scariest movie you've ever seen
I got totally freaked out watching "The Other" on TV when I was about 10 years old.

3. Bobbing for apples: choose one and discuss:
a) Nothing scary about that! Good wholesome fun.
b) Are you *kidding* me?!? The germs, the germs!

Great for kids who don't really think about germs. Not so much a grown-up activity.

4. Real-life phobia
High speeds, making "cold" phone calls

5. Favorite "ghost story"
When my son was a few months old I had a dream that my mother and grandmother came to visit. At that time my grandmother had been dead nearly three years. In the dream, my grandma was thrilled to pieces to meet her first great-grandchild. She cuddled him and cooed and pressed her cheek to the top of his fuzzy baby head. I woke up feeling wistful that this meeting could not happen in real life. Then I went to get my son out of his crib--and when I picked him up his hair smelled like my grandma's perfume . . .

I hate cold phone calls too, and it seems like something ministers "should" be OK with. So thanks for showing me I'm not alone!
