I realized a couple of things today that I wanted to pass along:
1) While doing the crossword at lunch and coming across the clue “Jerry’s pal” I realized that “George,” “Elaine,” and “Kramer” all have the same amount of letters (6) in them. (It ended up being “Elaine.”)
2) My school’s parking lot lights go out some time before 1:00 a.m. I never realized how dark 1:00 a.m. can be. And since the battery on the unlocker on my keys is worn down, I couldn’t even turn the lights on until I was three feet from the car. Empty schools are all kinds of freaky at night. In fact, here’s a list of my top three freakiest places in the middle of the night:
I don’t know why darkened, empty churches are so incredibly scary at night, but, man, they are.
Churches for realz!
Try a construction site that has the drywall on the upper half of the interior walls so you're walking through it totally exposed from the waist down and no electricity installed yet so there is no lighting other than what filters in through the half built exterior walls at 2 in the morning and the ray of your flashlight beam totally identifying your location for the bogeymen hiding in the darkness . . . You can't talk to me about freaky! You can't handle freaky!
And what were you doing at school at 1am? I can see the scariness in the churches and cemetaries… but what is it about the school?
What's so bad about a cemetary at night? Everyone's dead, what's the worst that can happen?
Howard – I can imagine that construction sites would be severely freaky. No, thanks!
Lisa – I was working on getting a lab put together and up and running. It took longer than I expected :(
Abe – good point, but they're just freaky!
