Alright Lucienne, what scares you?

What Scares Me and Why?

Well, that’s a loaded question, isn’t it? I feel a little bit like Adrian Monk, you know, that wonderful quirky television detective. I haven’t figured quite how to rank my greatest fears yet, but my list would run something like this:

1- Spiders

2- Camel Crickets, silverfish, cockroaches, palmetto bugs, all other bugs of any sort but particularly those with too many legs like millipedes and centipedes. Gah, I’m freaking myself out!

3- Psychos. (Not the boom, you’re dead kind, but the ones that like to play with their prey.)

4- Did I mention Spiders?

5- Ooky stuff. That’s right, I said ooky. As in slobber, bodily fluids, people’s half-eaten food, squishy-rotten bananas, raw oysters, mayonnaise… Bleck, there I’ve gone and given myself the shivers. 

Okay, I take it back, mayonnaise might come first. It might even beat out monkey brains and other things I’m not likely to ever encounter in my lifetime. Because mayonnaise sneaks up on you. Don’t believe me? The scene is set—you’re at a nice little hole-in-the-wall restaurant with your BFF or your SO or your imaginary friend. The kind of place where grease hangs in the air and you can practically taste the carb-loaded goodness of the burger on order, loaded down with bacon and other artery-abusing substances of choice. No mention is made in the menu of the ooky stuff. You think you’re safe. And then the burger arrives, the heavenly scent teasing your taste buds. Salivation starts all on its own. Your stomach rumbles in protest at the delay it knows will come when you insist on doctoring your burger with ketchup or barbeque sauce or honey mustard. And then you take the bun off to do just that and—don-don-DA! (mood music, in case you’re wondering)—you’re faced with the horror. The woeful white stuff of DOOM! 

It’s like something out of a horror film, no? Like finding out that Soylent Green is people! 

So there you have it. Now you know. Mayonnaise is my kryptonite. I hope you will use the knowledge only for good.

Lucienne Diver is the author of Vamped young adult series (think Clueless meets Buffy) and the Latter-Day Olympians urban fantasy series from Samhain, which Long and Short Reviews called “a clever mix of Janet Evanovich and Rick Riordan”.

  1. Mayo? Mayo? That beats out zombies? (I suppose it could be really bad, and you could get zombies carrying mayo.)

    And since you dislike bugs, it is good you live in a state that doesn't specialize in BUGS THE SIZE OF BUICKS.

  2. LOL. Great spotlight :) I bet you would have disliked my ex-boss when she'd dip her fries in mayonnaise. Then again who wouldn't? *Yuckie!*

  3. LOL, Deborah! I have to say that if escaping zombies meant wading into a mayo swamp (because that could happen), I might end up one of the undead. Or I'd find my inner urban fantasy heroine and kick zombie bahookie!

    What state are you talking about? I live in the state of denial!


  4. I love mayo and pretty much eat it everyday. I'm not a big fan of ketchup though.

    1. I think the ook factor for me comes from the fact that we had a friend growing up who used to eat mayo sandwiches...with the mayo dripping out and splattering like blood... Of course, that would work even better with ketchup!


I love to read comments!
