I was talking last week with one of my children about scary movies. I don’t watch them. I’ve never really watched them.
I don’t like to be scared. There was a time in my childhood where I was scared of most everything. I think I had enough fear in that short amount of time to last me the rest of my life. So no, I don’t get scared for fun. I actually usually get mad when I get scared. I don’t like it.
That goes well with my job. If I watched scary movies regularly, I think I would definitely have a hard time doing my job. I have found myself in some really shady places with no power, boarded windows, creaking floors, and cobweb-filled basements.
Tonight I am thankful that I’ve never been a fan of scary movies! I started my Monday morning going down in to this crawl space under a house. I had no hesitation. But I’m sure that if I’d seen a few select films, I probably would have been a bit more nervous!
