I bet you thought I forgot about it, didn't cha'...well, I didn't.
So, without further delay, here is today's Question Of The Day. *Duh Duh Duh...*
Ok, let's get just a little serious this time...
Tell me a secret about yourself. It doesn't have to be the earth-shattering news of where you hid the body or anything, but just something that maybe you fear, or even a pet peeve.
And no, don't give me the usual, spiders, creepy crawlies and what not. Something good peeps! (If it worries you to share, just email it to me, firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll post it anonymously in a comment for you...:D )
I am absolutely terrified of drowning.
Now, that's not to say I fear the water. I don't. I'm an Aquarian, I'm half fish. I love the water.
Did you know that I swam professionally when I was younger? Well, I did. My mother used to say she dropped me, accidentally in a pool when I was like 6 months old and instead of flailing around, I ducked my head under the surface and off I went down the pool. Clumsily mind you, but I was still swimming!
I started on a team when I was 5 and didn't quit until I went in the Army at 18. I was no Michael Phelps or anything, but I was half decent (Four time State Champ actually), but the Army replaced my drive for that life.
At 45, I still find time - about once a week or so because of life and what not - to hit the lanes and do some laps.
Because of this background and my love for the water, I'm a very strong swimmer, even today. And that's *why* I fear drowning. I'm so strong in the water, that I should be able to get myself out of whatever situation and I fear the day I can't...
So, that's my secret folks. One of my deepest fears!
Now it's your turn!
Tell me Bloganites, what's your fear...
If I like it, I might just give it to one of my characters in an upcoming WIP and then torture them with it...MUHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
Thanks as always for stopping by.
Until next time.
