Important Life Lessons Everyone Should Know
The problem is, my husband has been out of town, and I end up watching them late at night when the rest of the house is asleep. Not such a good idea because some of these episodes are freaking scary.
I couldn't look in the mirror after watching Bloody Mary. And all my kids have to do while we're out driving is say, "Mom, is that a scarecrow in that orchard?" and they know I'll cover my eyes and scream. I find myself constantly glancing over my shoulder.
On the other hand, I've learned many important lessons from this show, and that is what I want to pass on to my readers:
~ If something creepy is after you, it will ALWAYS sneak up from behind. And usually from the direction you were just looking a moment ago. Watch your back.
~ The surest way to meet something scary is to split up. People of the movies, when will you ever learn?
~ Never leave any part of your body exposed outside of the covers. The covers are your friends, stay under them.
~ If you hear a strange noise coming from your closet (or the room down the hall, or--heaven forbid--from the cellar) DO NOT CHECK IT OUT. I repeat, do NOT slowly and hesitantly approach the sound, especially if the lights won't turn on and there is intense, unsettling music playing in the background.
~ Never back up to a window. Inevitably the creature/demon/zombie/evil clown/vampire will break the glass and grab you.
~ Salt is your friend, keep it close. Silver or lead blades are also recommended, but harder to take on airplanes.
I know these are only the very basics, and there are lots of other important life lessons out there, but I hope you find these useful when you are home alone late at night and it's dark and eerie outside. They help me.
What important tips can you share?
