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?

Why do they always split up??? And I definitely follow the covers rule.ReplyDelete
It's one of life's big questions. And I'm glad you also find safety under the covers.Delete
LOLOLOLOLOL! I love this, Julie.ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by Erin!Delete
Just thinking of all your salt shaking cracks me up.ReplyDelete
I'm thinking I might need to upgrade to a tub of salt instead of a shaker.Delete
It's never a good idea to wander around in the forest at night looking for whatever it was that made a scary noise. No matter how tempting it is...don't do it.ReplyDelete
Another great piece of advice. Forests can be dangerous! Thanks for stopping by Gaylene.Delete
This is soo funny and so true. Why oh why do all the creepers pop out of wells, walls, deep dark holes, ceilings, under beds or attics? Why can't just once they walk in through the front door into the dining room where we are all sitting down for dinner and announce, "Hey I have this big ole knife and I am gonna chase you down and do unspeakable things but you will be just fine as long as you can run faster than the other guy." At least we stand a chance. I never peer too long into deep water! I KNOW there is something down there.ReplyDelete
I know what you mean about the deep water. It freaks me out. I can't stand swimming in lakes and oceans. Thanks for the great comment.Delete
I am behind with my blogging so forgive me for the late comment! Haha.Delete
Two rules that I still live by even though I am a grown man with two combat tours to Iraq is: Monsters live under the bed and in the closet. However, they only can reach you if your feet touch the floor next to the bed with the lights out or you open the closet door with the lights out. The second rule is standing too closely to a fresh grave, family member or not, warrents a swift reaction of the undead to grab your feet and drag you to the underworld.
I have yet to be ate by a bedroom monster or undead relative so I feel following these rules are helping! Haha Great post by the way.
