What scared you as a kid?--Al

Small scale, spiders -- but I could run from them. Large scale, the infinity of space which chased me for years.

For some reason, I was absolutely terrified by a large piece of equipment that I believe was to be used to dig ditches---I remember it being colloquially called a "ditch digger." It was parked for a couple of days near our home, then I never saw it again---though I kept an eye out for it for a few weeks!

Sitting with my back to a dark, empty room used to give me the shivers. I still need to walk through all of a house or apartment when I come in at night, before I can be comfortable alone.
