I certainly not the scary movie type. I just don’t enjoy the vampires! In fact, I stay away from most action films too. Perhaps, this was decided early in my life, when at age 6 I was taken by my Mum to see The Wizard of Oz. I still remember that evening clearly. How could a child ever forget the day her Dad went off to war? Mum thought she’d keep our minds off the situation by taking us for a movie. All was well – Dorothy was a sweetheart. It was the Wicked Witch of the West that set me off. I just couldn’t take her eerie laughter. I began to fidget and squirm. Then I began to close my eyes. When it got too bad for me, I asked to be taken home. I’m not sure my brother stayed back till the end, but Mum and I certainly went home.
I watched the movie the other night and I laughed at myself for being such a scaredey cat back then. But I still won’t watch scary movies even if you pay me!
