A friend of mine tagged me to write what I was afraid of. She wrote about her fear of the dentist. I actually have lots of fears...last night, ironically, I told John a life long fear of mine has been that one day I will inadvertently do something that will land me in jail for a long time. Not that I'm a planning criminal but that somehow, some day I'll be in the wrong place at the wrong time and make just that wrong decision and will end up in jail. I feel confident this will never actually happen but when I watch Law and Orders about ordinary people who go to jail based on a one time foolish, stupid act, the fear surface.

I'm also afraid of the dark. This doesn't bode well since I often get up in the middle of the night to read and have to make my way through the dark to do it. Now that I've almost completely stopped watching and reading anything gory or remotely real-life scary, my fear has been almost non-existent, but last night (and wouldn't you know I just finished a semi-gory mystery book-my first in months) I got the overwhelming fear that someone was in the house or was going to come in the house and kidnap Anne while we slept unknowingly in our beds. It was so intense I actually went into her room at 2:30 am and checked on her to make sure she was still there. On nights like that I pray for morning to come quickly.

What about you? Anyone inspired to write their fears?

I think about the wrong place, wrong time and then ending up in jail thing probably more often than I should!
