The scariest thing that ever happened to me was when I was about 5. My parents took me to a Halloween Haunted House, which was very scary to me at the time. I remember as I was walking in, it was very dark, and this cheesey Halloween music was playing that is supposed to spook you, and believe it or not, it scared me at the time. We walked through a dark hall, with fake coffins and mummies all around. All of a sudden are tour guide said in a creepy voice, "Watch out! Some of the mummies come back to life and grab your feet at night!". At that time I was probably thinking, "Yeah right. As if those dummies are actually real!"! Then, something grabbed my foot! It was a person laying under a table on the floor! At the time I was scared out of my mind, and I ran out of the haunted house crying. When I got out side, I was in a crowded shopping mall, which made me even more scared, since I was five years old and that was the first time I had ever been away from my parents! So I ran back in, grabbed my mom's hand, and ran back out! That was definitly the scariest thing that ever happened to me!
