I can’t believe I’m posting this picture on my blog because that means it will be in my plain site for at least a week on my homepage for me to see, but here it goes…..


Bleeeehhhh! Did I really just post that? Yes, the “lovable” extraterrestrial that EVERYONE except me loves was a big time childhood fear. My mother can confirm this. Samantha’s scary kiddie movie theater experience triggered me to remember my scary movie experience. Ugh, I’m having such a hard time writing this post with a big ET face starring at me! Ok, ending this post now.
What’s your silly childhood fear that may have stuck as an adult?

  1. Sharks. My parents had a huge tank with sharks in it. Freaked me out all the time. I hate them to this day.

  2. Hahaha a friend and I were just talking about this! She is terrified of ET, too! I love him and it just made me want to see the movie again :) But my fear is also sharks. I won’t go in the ocean past my ankles!

    I can relate a bit to the shark fear… except mine are dolphins. They would get too friendly when I used to surf and they just freaked me out.

    hahahahaha! Oh that picture scared me too! I had to quickly scroll past it. I don’t like ET. “The Blob” also scared me so badly growing up. You can ask my family. It was ridiculous.

    I’m still terrified of ET. I almost couldn’t bring myself to comment as the urge to close the browser window was so strong. Eeeeugh!

    ET used to scare me when I was little! Gremlins are way scarier in my mind though.

    LOL! E.T. doesn’t scare me, but I’m a chicken when it comes to horror films. I can’t watch them, not even the really cheesy ones. lol!

    How did you cope with E.T. on your blog?? Could be good therapy ;)

    Hope you had a great weekend!

  12. Oh my goodness, I was too!!! E.T. scared me so bad and so did the joker when I was little! Too funny!
