Ok, Just to let you know I am a shrieker !That's right, all you have to do is catch me unawares and speak to me and I will be startled and shriek like a big girl. God forbid you should actually sneak up behind me and put a hand on my shoulder- you will be deafened !
This causes endless fun for people, particularly at work. I can just be sitting in my office working and someone will come to the door and just say "Jodie' and arrrrgghhhhh I scream ! It usually scares them just as much!
I scream if someone steps out of a doorway in my own house and I didn't expect it.
I have no idea why I do this and I don't think I was like this as a kid.
This is what scares me.
Her name is Cecilia and she was Jemma's Christmas present.
She used to stand just inside Jemma's door but I had to move her to the other side of the room because she startled me every time I went in there.
Of course Cecilia pops up in the strangest places, the laundry..... the sewing room, always beautifully attired but she scares the crap out of me nonetheless and the rest of the house fall about laughing!
of course all the "big" things scare me as well , like global warming, over population, consumer culture but for actual heart racing, bladder control fright - nothing is as scary as Cecilia .
