My worst nightmare

Yes, it's Friday the 13th and what do you think are the odds that I would encounter my biggest fear??  I was sitting in my office, oblivious to the nightmare going on just below me.  I went downstairs to get a coffee and saw this......

Eeeeeek!  And there wasn't just one in my lobby - Noooo, there was half a dozen!  I hate clowns!!!  I stopped at the front desk for a minute to chat with a few staff members and express my friday the 13th distress.  The receptionist kind of looked at me and gestured over my shoulder like there was someone behind me.  I thought it was one of THEM.  I jumped about 2 feet in the air.  That was mean.   Lol   The next time there is a Shriners convention, I'm leaving town. 

There was another incident this week that I was saving for today.  See, clowns are not my only fear.  Old antique dolls freak me out.  Maybe it's from that creepy Chuckie doll but I just think they're creepy.  The other day I was visiting someone who was clearing out a home after a family members death.  We were looking at antiques etc and they wanted to show me something they had found.  (I really wish they hadn't). 

It was a doll that belonged to his father. We guess it to be about 100 years old.  They put it in my hand.....against my will I might add.  I didn't take a picture but it kind of looked like this

 But the really creepy part was it only had one eye, yet the face had no marks or scratches.  What happened to the eye??  It was just gone.  It creeped me out.  And since we are on the topic and I'm confessing all my weirdness, these also scare me

Whenever I see really old baby shoes I think that some dead baby is hovering around looking for its lost  shoes.  

Now that i have confirmed what many of you have suspected...I'm a little crazy, what are your Friday the 13th issues?


  1. Hi there Kim, It had to happen on a Friday the 13, lol...

    I was just checking my bloglovin and I see that Lauren from Rugs and Pugs got some of the same stuff as you, lol. She found a prim doll and an old baby bootie that she love.

    It all depends how you look at things. I'm not much for old things personally but I can see the value for those who like to collect them as they are rare.

    As for the clown, I know a very gentle clown or two. They are just people who play the part. Truth is, I'm not a clown person either, even as a child, I didn't like clown and it stayed with me sort of.


  2. I hate clowns too...and dolls...I'm betting alot of folks hate them! My sweet Aunt who lived across the street from us gave me a clown puppet when I was little. I hated it..with a passion! I loved my Aunt and was polite about the gift, but I was scared of it and secretly threw it away. With 6 kids in the house, Mom never questioned me about it or where it was. Maybe she hates them too..hmmm, I'll have to ask her. The 13th doesn't really bother me. I went to a ghost hunt once on Fri. the 13th and it was fun and I think of it like I do Halloween...a fun event that really means nothing. Hope you have a better clown free weekend!

  3. Oh, Kim ~
    I will never look at baby shoes the same again! Since I have several that don't have a mate, I may imagine they are from a one legged dead baby.
    Look at the bright side ~ the 13th is almost over and tomorrow is Saturday.
    Hugs :)

  4. Oh no! I'm not a super big fan of clowns either. Never thought that about baby shoes... that's a little creepy. I guess I can be glad that my kids never wore shoes until they were bigger. :)

  5. Ok the clown thing is creepy I agree. Never thought about the dolls and shoes the same ways.
    My sweet daughter turned 30 on Friday the 13th and she is having a fit about it. so to us that is scary that, that much time has gone by.

  6. Okay this is just too weird for words, I don't do clowns, in fact I run the other way, but the dolls and the shoes, I never even look at antique dolls, and know nothing more creepy and I can't stand baby shoes. It could be why mine never wore any until they were 20 at least. :)
    I just think those kind from stride rite are the worse and I could never even look at them. You totally crack me up. So glad you survived the day. :)

  7. Hi Kim, I dont like clowns either! I also would never have an operation on Friday the 13th.

  8. Killer Clowns... that was the movie that made me not like clowns... yikes! lol! The dolls can be creepy too... but, that's because I had watched a horror movie about a room full of dolls. And, when night came they all came alive to torture people... lol! I think a Friday the 13th in October would be FUN! :-)

  9. I can so identify with you here Kim, if it makes you feel any better, I share the same fears when it comes to clowns and antique or strange looking dolls! I think Chuckie has a lot to do with it. That's why I never watch scary movies...I am just too chicken!

  10. Wow! You have a lot of fears, girl!! You make it sound funny ~ but I'm guessing its not funny to you!!!

  11. Hmmmm... I really didn't have any before, but you may have given me some!

  12. Oooo Kim I am with ya on those old dolls and baby shoes! Creepy!!

  13. I probably have more weird phobias than you do.
