  1. Kaki King / An Horse

    Ever since seeing Evil Dead 2 I have been afraid of dead people grabbing me on the stairs. So if it’s dark, I usually walk briskly up any steps…cuz you never know.

    I also have what I would say is a fairly reasonable fear of house centipedes (the long brown ones with the hairlike legs, not the red ones [but those are scary in their way…]). They move so fast and I always encounter them when I am least capable of dealing with them, plus their little legs quiver when you smoosh them! brrrrrrrr.

  2. Kaki King/ An Horse

    When I was little, my brother used to tell me that wherever the wallpaper in our bathroom was peeling, it was spiders’ nest and baby spiders could come crawling out at any time. Now, I can never have wallpaper in my home, so I guess my fear is of wallpaper…

  3. Congrats Michelle! We’ve got you on the list for Kaki King!

  4. For me summer camp when I was younger was girl scout camp! I will never forget canoeing all day, everyone had awful sunburns. The counselors gave us all tons of aloe vera. Then sleeping on a sandbar and having the sand stick to the aloe on my sunburn, ouch!
