In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “1984.”
You’re locked in a room with your greatest fear. Describe what’s in the room.
If I was locked in a room with my greatest fear it would be with an aggressive or barking dog. I would be in deep terror. I have a terrible fear of dogs that are unleashed or bark and snarl at me. It comes from being attacked when I was 21 by a sheepdog on a farm where we wanted to ask the farmer if we could camp in his field. I only have to think there is a loose dog – not hear or see it – and I either freeze and cry or have to walk away in the opposite direction. It has got better and as my 2 sons have 2 dogs each they have helped but not completely. They are lovely dogs – 2 miniature dachshunds, a beagle and a collie/springer.
My second greatest fear is of lifts – but that’s another story……..
