Share Your World – Week of October 25, 2021


I cannot believe it’s the end of October! It’s once again time to hustle to get all the October transaction completed at work. Another long week, here we go.

Name something you wouldn’t want to run into in a dark forest or in an abandoned building  (yeah it’s a retread.  But there are new participants to SYW too who probably never answered it)

I wouldn’t run into a dark forest or an abandoned building for anyone. Who knows what lurk in the dark? A dog??? A cat??? A bomb???

Do you believe in multiple dimensions or worlds?

Absolutely!

Would you ever go to a graveyard at night?

No way, I don’t even want to go in the daylight hours.

What is the most frightening book you’ve ever read?

I can only think of one and after all this time, it’s still giving me the heebie-jeebies just thinking about it – In Cold Blood by Truman Capote. I got the paper copy from my book haul in 2018 and began reading it. It was so scary at first but when I reached the funeral part, my head began conjuring up scary imagery. My imagination took hold and couldn’t read on.

Desperate to know what happens next, I turned to another medium – audiobook. It was worse. I felt like one of those people after watching a movie, afraid to go to bed, checking my room for ghosts, jumping when someone entered the room.

The worst part was I still don’t know why I had to go and watch the movie right after finishing the book. Worst decision ever.

BONUS QUESTION (just for silliness’ sake!)

If you could have a spooky Halloween pet (black cat, owl, bat, rat, wolf), which would you pick out of the five choices?

I am assuming either these creatures are friendly and don’t bite or we share a language, I would pick a wolf. Then I can dressed up as Little Red Riding Hood (not that I would ever be caught in a costume) and parade the streets with a wolf flanking me.

Look, Little Red Riding Hood has slain the big bad wolf.

  1. Love the replies. I wouldn’t go into a forest. Period. I’m the scaredy one. No sir, I wouldn’t go even if you paid me to go.
    Scary books. None! I cannot handle scary books.
    But l have a scary movie that’s more real than any I’ve seen: Less Than Zero — the Scariest movie I ever watched to the end.

    • Thank you.
      I don’t do scary books either. I mostly just stick to suspense and thriller. Though there’s sometimes a horror element to them, it’s nothing like In Cold Blood. They don’t get me to look under my bed and check my closet. 😀

  2. Thanks, Yinglan for Sharing Your World! In Salt Lake City when I lived there (and before Covid obviously), there used to be a ‘Ghost Tour’ that would take folks around to various places – the older buildings, the Salt Lake Cemetery, and such places. There was a tour guide who would give a little bit of history of the ‘haunted’ place, or odd facts about what happened there and so forth. They included the cemetery, but when they got there, it turned out to be more of a walking tour, and I stayed in the bus! I don’t mind hearing the stories, but there’s wise and there’s foolish and mucking around in a graveyard in the night is the latter one! “In Cold Blood” was indeed a horrifying book, you were very brave to finish it, and then to see the movie. I couldn’t do that! I’d have nightmares I think! I liked your choice of ‘pet’ and yes, they would be extremely friendly (to you, their owner) and you could probably speak to them too! Fantasy land doesn’t have a lot of rules! 🙂 Have a wonderful and non-stressful week!

    • I think the tour is still going. I heard about it a few years ago when I went to the U. I used to take the bus when passes by the city cemetery near the Capitol, in the daylight hours, it looks quite peaceful. Not sure about the night but it’s not a place to hang out for sure.
      I wasn’t going to finish that book but the suspense was a torture even though the ending is so obvious. It’s the process of finding the killers that kept me going.
      Have a wonderful week. 🙂

  3. I wouldn’t go downtown in D.C. where a lot of rats run around at night or anywhere where there are a lot of restaurants, for that matter!

    I can’t remember the last scary book I read, smh! I do remember the movie, Body Double from the 80’s, where a guy was spying on a woman in another apartment and she wound up getting killed. I didn’t even watch it to the end, it was so realistic and terrifying to me.

    Although I tend to be allergic to most cats, I’d take the black cat. I think that black cats get a bad rap.
