I got yer title right here.

The other night, I’m sitting there, mindlessely surfing, when all of a sudden, the power goes out. It had stopped raining, the weather wasn’t overly bad at that point, but the power just simply went out.

Let it be known that I’m afraid of the dark. I don’t care who knows it. The dark just freaks me out, and reminds me of depression. You know the first thing that I think of when the power goes out? “That’s it, someone’s outside, planning to kill me. They know I’m a single girl, and they’re going to break in, and rape and kill me. I bet they’re already in here somewhere.”

Yeah, I’ve watched one too many Lifetime movies. This is not normal shit. I totally overlook any sort of clear minded thought process. I overlook the fact that I have a dog that likes to growl at the wind, and will bark when neccessary. I also overlook the fact that my place is the size of a tuna can and I can hear every little thing. I also have three boys that live downstairs, and would probably hear me scream if there actually was anything happening.

Even though I was freaked, I didn’t actually freak out. I did what any normal girly girl would do, which was light the 9,876,521 candles that I have floating around my house. Thank god I stocked during that Pier one sale.

I’m like that. Too many viewings of they know you’re alone and crap. I have a hotel lock, a deadbolt and a 2×4 that I use under the doorknob to help keep it closed even though there are 2 locks already on it.

Oh my, I do exactly the same thing. Of course I will stay up until 2:00 am to watch a Lifetime movie and then freak out when I have to go outside to walk my dog. I am glad the cheese does not stand alone on this!

dude, I have those thoughts even when the lights are on sometimes. it’s just scary to live alone in today’s world.

It’s so good to know that I’m not the only person who is that scared of the dark and what could possibly happen to me in it. I thought I had a cruel imagination.
