We were all afraid of something when we were little, some more irrational than others. What was your fear as a little kid? Post it if you dare. :p

Yeah, I guess being afraid of the dark was one. Got over it after accidentily getting locked in a basement for a bit, though. :p

Dogs. I was bitten by one when I was about 4 or 5, I always gave them a wide berth from that point on.

I don't mind them so much now.

I was afraid of Bean Bag Chairs because my dad used to tease me and drop them off our balcony when I was walking below (not intending to hit me).

I also loved the Power Rangers, but whenever a fair would come to town and there would be people dressed up like them, I'd run away kicking and screaming. Same goes for the Chuck E. Cheese guy.


I didn't make it!

I had an intense fear of storms. Now I really don't have any fears or anything. I mean there are things I would be afraid of if I were confronted with them, but I will likely never be confronted with such things so I have no reason to be afraid.

Not sure if this is in same category but my dad said I used to wake up screaming saying "Their in the house, their in the house!!!"

Dad would jump out of bed checking the house with a pistol and a flashlight.

Oddly I have no recollection of the screaming "their in the house" and such moments. I do remember being terrified of going down the hallway to get to the bathroom because it was by the living room.

For some reason I was terrified of going into the living room at night, in the dark, after everyone had gone to bed.

Bees, dark, dentist, doctor, and reaching into plants or under the couch. Odd, I know, but I was frightened of something biting me.
