What the Duck Fears

For this Halloween, I’d like to tell you guys about a few things that scare me.  Most are the usual.  Axe murderers, spiders, diseases.  But, I bet most of you don’t suffer with a fear of…basking sharks.  They filter food from the water like whale sharks, you know, plankton and stuff, but as they do this seemingly harmless deed, their disturbingly huge mouths hang open.  It looks like they have no bottom jaw, and there’s just this huge cavern in there.  A person could easily get caught up in that great big horror-fest if both they and the shark weren’t paying attention.  If one swallowed me, would it even know?!  When I look through books with pictures of fish, I get rather mortified when I see this most frightening of peaceful creatures.

            Another thing happened one night, when I looked behind one of the places we lived in and I saw this light moving around.  I watched it for a bit, very creeped out, and thought I had seen one of those orb ghosts or whatever.  But, this was no swamp gas.  This was…a person holding a lantern.  I was relieved.  I also thought I saw a UFO once, but it was a light on a plane wing.  I’m a dope.

  1. At least you’ve actually seen these things, know they are real or just misinterpreted them.

    I’m afraid of nothing but deep-sea giant squid and WHEN will ever encounter such a thing? Pfft. Stupid irrational fears.

    1. Giant squids would be scary. All those arms! Just waiting to grab you! At least, basking sharks can’t do that. And I’m likely to never see a basking shark in real life, either. I heard they’re rare, and I don’t go in the ocean.
