    In Which I Deal With My Fear By Writing In A Humorous Fashion ;)

    Okay, so a couple months ago we had this epic Tornado Warning,  and afterward I couldn't sleep. So I wrote this! Also, thanks to my awesome BF for texting me early in the morning to warn me and thus providing this amusing opportunity ------ Tornado warning.  Cue the adrenaline...

    I feel like that there no way

    that I can protect myself from a Tornado. I don't have a basement, so they say to go to the bathroom if there's a Tornado. I don't feel like a bathroom will protect me from a Tornado. The bathroom downstairs doesn't even have a bathtub in it. Sometimes I feel like I have a...

    I'm Scared of Tomatoes Too!!!

    They are plain nasty raw.  Not to mention poisonous!  They poisoned people for years when served on pewter dishes.  The only good tomato is one that has been cooked down and turned into a red sauce!   Uh, oh, tornadoes!  Oh yeah, those are bad too.

    April, 1967 - "I Don't Like This..."

    1967 was a freaky year. First the blizzard in January. We barely got rid of that when... Spring dawned warm and sticky. Too hot for April. But there was supposed to be showers that would break the heat - we hoped. On the way home from school, I kept glancing at the western sky...

    My Only Physical Fear

    I can't describe how terrified I am of tornadoes. They are really the only physical thing I'm scared of. I can't even believe how much they haunt me. Whenever I have a nightmare, usually tornadoes are involved. And if I see even a suspicious cloud, I freak out in my mind and have...

    My Greatest Fear

    Warning Sirens

    I live in a tornado-ripe area, and when I hear those warning sirens, I FREAK. I've been in 3 tornadoes, and they terrify me. I hear the sirens and I run straight for the bathroom, climb into the tub, cover myself with pillows and just cry my eyes out. I always call everyone I...

    Ugh, No Way

    I don't think I could live somewhere so dangerous. I wouldn't want a tornado to tear down my house while I'm sleepin'. Worse yet, tear down my house at all and i have to get evacuated. That would suck. I would be homeless.
