I am falling behind on answering comments, I’m sorry! I promise I will reply once I’ve gotten my other affairs in order. It’s not easy answering everyone’s questions, and the first and last weeks of every month are always busy — deadlines and whatnot, because dispensing free advice and info here on the blog doesn’t pay the bills, unfortunately 🙂 — so thanks in advance for your patience. 🙂

I’ll tell you a little secret: I’m the worst coward when it comes to scary stories. If I hear or see one, I wouldn’t be able to get the images, actual or imagined, out of my head, so I try never to let them in, in the first place. I can read (and love) a Neil Gaiman, but that’s it. I can’t even remember the last time I watched a horror film.

When my friend Mar Jefferson Go — remember him? He’s the brilliant artist I featured in “It’s All Connected” not so long ago — invited me to like the Four Freaky Kids Facebook page, I didn’t really think anything of it. I didn’t think anything of their tagline either:

We four, we freaky four, promise you, the universe, one strange story every week.

I mean, strange is strange, and scary is scary, and strange isn’t scary…right?

That’s what I tell myself, anyway, every time I see a Four Freaky Kids post, and Every. Time. I’m wrong. I get scared.* And, what’s worse, I actually…kind of…like it.

This is their latest story:

* I know. My threshold for scary isn’t very high to start with, and then the stories make me imagine all sorts of things. #wimp
