Laugh all you want. Monster trucks are really scary.
Maybe I had a really bad childhood experience. Maybe I'm just a big baby. But I'm not afraid to say it: I'm still afraid of monster trucks. You never know where they might be lurking. Under your bed. In your closet. Behind the shower curtain.
One time, my brother's friend's cousin's girlfriend came home late one night and there was a monster truck creeping behind her door, so when she closed it behind her, it popped out and revved its engine at her. She threw her keys at it and it sped away THANK GOD. Can you even imagine what might have happened if she hadn't had those keys???
Sometimes, just as I'm falling asleep, I SWEAR I can feel something sit on the edge of my bed. But when I sit up and turn on the light, there's nothing there. Nothing but tiny track marks in the sheets. That's why I always sleep with a hammer.
