That moment when the roller coaster car finally reaches the peak and hovers for just a second before it plunges over. The way my heart beats nearly out of my chest, that split second where I can’t breathe and I question myself. What the hell was I thinking? Let me off NOW! The thrill after stepping off the coaster, knowing I’ve done it. I beat my fear.
Darkness with only the illumination from the T.V. screen as scary music plays. I know something is going to happen from the way the music has intensified, the moment suspended, my afghan at the ready. The, HOLY JESUS, moment as the back speakers kick in, as a bird hits the peaceful window on the screen in front of me. I’m not sure whether to cover my head or run like hell. The chuckle that escapes my lips when the credits roll, it wasn’t that scary. Well, okay it was but I’m not telling my children how scared I was. I survived, and with dry pants, no less. Yeah me!
Deep breathe Sherri.
