Are you afraid of the dark?

I am almost 30, almost a mom and I am scared of the dark. Not that I have to sleep with a nightlight, mainly because there is always some sort of glow from the windows, but I am scared to walk anywhere in the apartment in the dark.

I get out of bed and turn on the hall light to go to the bathroom. The Bathroom. This is where I am most scared in the dark. The mirror in the bathroom. That is the real problem. It freaks me out. A bathroom mirror in the dark is one of my only fears. Spiders? Nope. Snakes? Nope. Dying? Nope. Extreme adventures where you risk your life? Nope. Bathroom mirrors? yep.

I know where it comes from. It comes from Bloody Mary and Candy Man. I just never got over the slumber party / horror movie fear you are supposed to get rid of when you are say... 12? I'm 30. The idea of confronting my fear and standing in a dark bathroom while looking in the mirror and repeating Bloody Mary or Candy Man, scares the crap out of me. I mean what if something DID happen?? What if I saw something appear behind me? What if at that very same moment ANYTHING made a noise? I can't even imagine what I would do.

Sometimes when I get up in the night and go to the bathroom and just think the name Bloody Mary in my head i get scared and stop before I think it three times.

There you have it. My greatest fear in life is a bathroom mirror.

One Reason to love Riesen's

Because they are DELICIOUS! Really I could eat 30,000 of them and not even flinch. Yes, thirty thousand. I have my first Reisen every morning right after breakfast. Every. Morning (sometimes I even have one or two before 8am). and then it's down hill from there. Or up hill. Depends on if you are my taste buds or my Conscious.

Here's to Reisen's!!! I LOVE YOU!

If I ever have another pet I think I will name it Reisen. Especially a chocolate lab. I never wanted a chocolate lab before, but this gives me a RIESEN to want one.
