Note To Self

I should not watch Forensic Files

after dark 

when I am alone in the house.   

I should also not run/walk on the treadmill in a cold, dank garage after watching said TV program…after dark…alone in the house.  I can’t tell you how many times I looked over my shoulder expecting some serial rapist to be behind me ready to pounce.   I had it all planned out in my head what I would do if someone WERE actually behind me,  I knew exactly what tool (pipe wrench) I would grab to bash his head in with and I knew exactly which pair of hedge trimmers I would grab to stab him in the neck with. And  just in case Michael Myers happened to be standing right behind me,  I knew exactly how I would dial 911 (you better believe I had that phone close by) while screaming and running wildly throughout my house.  And if Jason Voorhees were in the woods while I was running away wildly, I knew exactly which way to run so that he would fall into a big hole. 

 Did I mention that I am a big scaredy cat and I have a wild imagination?   So I really didn’t get to enjoy my run/walk, but I had adrenaline pumping like you would not believe, and I have never been so happy to see my little family walk through the door!  So from now on, I will watch only happy TV before I run…

after dark…

all by myself.

    I so know what you mean! I have an entire roster of programs I can’t watch while home alone because they leave me terrified I’m going to be murdered by a maniac and/or haunted by a ghost.

    Basically, I can only watch Food Network and talk shows. I’m such a baby.

    Glad you didn’t have to use that pipe wrench!

    You would laugh at me if you knew the arsenal of weapons I bring to bed with me when the hub is out of town – phone (for dialing 911), flashlight (for scaring off bad guys and/or hitting them on the head), butcher knife under the mattress (for suprise knife attack against badguy) and unloaded pistol (for fake threat against badguy or throwing at badguy’s head). Sometimes when I am going through my list of *things that COULD happen*, I have to tell myself, *OR NOTHING AT ALL COULD HAPPEN AND YOU COULD SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT LIKE A GROWNUP!!!* That usually works and I can sleep after that. but yeah, I’m pretty much a baby too!

    Funny, funny post. I am the same way when hubby takes the kids out to eat so I can walk on the treadmill. In the back part of the house. When it’s dark outside. And I keep twirling my head to look at the door and hallway expecting some one to be there.

    When we lived over in your area, my hubby traveled a lot and when he was out of town, we always had severe weather, from straight line winds to tornadoes. Such fun!

    Yeah Grumpy there’s nothing like an over zealous WeatherMan to get you all freaked out about a tornado watch!! gotta love those guys!
