I love my mother


For every traumatic story she told us about not sticking your arm or leg out of the car window because it would be torn off. About not playing w/ toys out the car windows because we would lose whatever was out the windows & whatever was attached to it. I have my limbs intact because mom put terrifying images into my head. Wish this kid's mom had done the same.

THANKS FOR FEEDING MY IMAGINATION & LETTING ME TERRIFY MYSELF INTO BEHAVING THE WAY YOU WANTED. I ONLY HAVE A FEW PHOBIAS LEFT, I'VE GOTTEN BETTER AT WALKING DOWN HOTEL HALLWAYS ALONE.

My mom warned me about sticking your hand/arm/foot/head out the car window too! I'm not so good with the hotel hallway - my sister had a friend who had badness visit upon them.

Can my parent induced phobia list be friends with yours?

Friday's almost here!!! I want to walk on fear with you.

Love you so much!

John and Veronica constantly warned us about that. I am still to this day no one to let my arm out the window. I've got the hotel walking down pat...occupational necessity and all.

I still have vivid memories of my mother yelling at me for walking ahead of her & around the corner in hotels (out of her sightline) and being told all about how easy it would be for some stranger to just wait w/ the door ajar, snatch me into his room, and slit my throat. All before she even rounded the corner. Burned into my head I tell you.

When people roll their eyes at my worst case scenarios or possibilities of danger - I didn't get to be this way left to my own devices - Mom helped start me off.
