  1. I've never watched any of the Matrix movies, but suspect they'd leave me scratching my head. My husband likes horror movies so I've been in the room at times when he's watching them and have seen some scenes from Silence of the Lambs that can't be unseen. I wish they could be. I agree with you on the last few questions. I had a hard time coming up with answers I wanted to share.

  2. I can answer #12. It is happening now. Watching my mother leave me a little every day due to illness both physically and mentally, knowing the strong woman she was and seeing her so scared now is sad. My answer to # 14 is coming ... being totally alone in life when she dies. No one to turn to for advice , comfort or just a hug when you need reassurance or love. Knowing there is no one in your corner anymore.

    1. So sad for you. My mother (98) is very healthy, but has Alzheimers an she left me a few years ago. What is left is a shell who sometimes knows who I am and sometimes does not. It is very depressing!

    2. Thank you, Bev. I know it it very hard and sad for you too.

  3. Rosemary's Baby was a little scary. Surgeries are also scary!

  4. One of my phobias is of hospitalization, can't imagine what would happen if I needed surgery.

  5. I saw the very first Matrix and couldn't make heads or tails of it and never saw any other (if there were others...from your answer I guess there were). Funny, but I didn't think of "Wuthering Heights" as scary. And I have seen lots so clips from "Silence of the Lambs," but I don't know if I've ever seen the whole thing. "Rosemary's Baby" was terrifying...especially the rape scene (much more scary than in the movie)

  6. I forgot about the matrix movies and yes very confusing! Rosemary's baby was very scary. I have had too many surgeries yes they are very scary!
