Day 145 Scare House II
This is the scary season, so last night, I had take- out Chinese food, watched a scary movie, and then I was off to a haunted house. Not a real one like in (Day 103-Whaley House), but a dramatic “scare” experience –ScareHouse. Because I am chicken by nature, I have never been a fan of scary movies or the haunted houses that pop up everywhere for Halloween but since last year it was so much fun (see Day 78), I thought that I would be brave and give a it try again.
Like any good movie sequel, ScareHouse was just as much fun the second time around. This place gets the prize for gruesome decorating details. Each room was just like a horror movie set. The make-up on the actors was terrific and they keep in character just like they do in Disney World.
Even though I knew that things would pop out at me, I still jumped and screamed and each time that I did, I burst into laughter. The laugher might have been the result of embarrassment from the fact that, “they got me again.” Of course you also laugh at your friend when he screams because you enjoy his moment of fear and visa versa.
I am not sure why we revel in the brief adrenaline rush of fear- maybe because it quickens into laughter or because for a moment, we are not in control. Oh well, I am glad to say that my chicken days seem to be over since I have made it through the ScareHouse twice! However I will never go to the basement! (ScareHouse has basement for the super brave.)
The Lord is for me, so I will not be afraid. What can mere mortal do to me? (Psalm 118:6)
