I still can’t fathom what makes you scared. My Neighbor Totoro, the classic children’s cartoon about an overgrown forest rabbit and a cat bus, is absolutely terrifying. The Lord of the Rings trilogy, with the Balrog, the orcs, the Nazgul, and the Paths of the Dead, is not terrifying but rather captivating. Random episodes of SpongeBob SquarePants? Absolutely terrifying. Patrick is apparently the devil, even though you adore the real starfish in the tank that’s right next to you when you watch TV. Star Wars (only the original thus far) is “cooooool” (No, you may not have a lightsaber), but the Lego spoof,The Empire Strikes Out (featuring the X-Wing, the Tie Advanced, Tantive IV Lego sets you like playing with so much) is shut your eyes and cover your ears terrifying. The Lego Movie, on the other hand? “AWESOME!”
I’m still clueless about what makes you scared. Fruit flies will make you run away crying, but you’ll approach any massive animal at the petting zoo and shove your little fingers right towards those massive teeth without any fear or hesitation (good thing I have fast reflexes). You’d pet the tiger if you could (and you tried). Your favorite stuffed animal is a tiger shark, and your second favorite is a tarantula, both animals picked by you to the great surprise of both Mommy and me (and everyone else in the store). You’ll learn more about people’s common phobias later, but right now, I can’t figure yours out.
