The most scared I’ve ever been is crossing train tracks in my Grandfather’s Cadillac and looking to the left and seeing a train hurtling towards me. Apparently the signals weren’t working. As my rear bumper cleared the tracks the train went by, going VERY fast. I had to pull over and be sick. I literally saw my life flash before my eyes. I was bawling when I got home and told my Grandfather. He freaked and called the Town the next day. Wow, he was MAD!
A different kind of scared…
My then boyfriend (now ex-husband) and I had gone to his parents place for Thanksgiving dinner. We got back to his house where he lived with his grandparents and was told to call home. I was raised by my grandparents as well and found it odd that my dad had answered the phone. I was told to come home right away and I thought I was in trouble. I was 17. I went home and found that my grandmother had collapsed from a brain anurysm and was, for all intents and purposes, dead. We lived a good 45 minutes from the hospital and I was SO scared that I wouldn’t get there in time to say goodbye.
So, what is the most scared you’ve been?
