When I was about five years old, my brother decided to show me the movie Jaws. We watched the whole thing and I was terrified! After that day I was never able to look at the ocean the same way. Even the mention of sharks of Jaws I would freak out! I can remember the time that we went to Underwater World after that. We were walking through looking at the aquarium looking at all the fish. I looked to my left and what do I see? But a shark swimming as fast as it can towards the glass. As the rest of my family stayed to watch the shark get closer and closer, I ran the heck outta there! I was going to stay to watch the new upcoming sequel! To this day I still am afraid of sharks. I know it's stupid because we live in Wisconsin and sharks usually don't eat people but I still don't like them. There's just something about them that creeps me out!
I also remember when I was little I was scared of spiders. I was about 6 or 7 years old and it was around bed time. My dad decided to tell me the happy little fact that people swallow 8 spiders in their sleep in a lifetime. Well of course knowing this fact I sat away making sure no spiders would come near me. I remember it was getting late and I was tired but I didn't want to fall asleep incase a spider snuck up on me. I'm not scared of spiders today but I was for a while when I was younger!!!
