These movies have made me a little paranoid. Not just me, though! Boyfriend is too. He's been scouring the web for the best deal on baseball bats...youth baseball bats. Yeah, that little kid bat is going to do a number on the mass murderer.
When something topple over in one of the bedrooms the other day, I clutched a remote as I tiptoed to find the ghost. Because obviously a remote is going to work wonders on a transparent creature.
To top it all off, while we were sleeping one night, the doorbell rang at 1:30 AM. I held tightly to the sheets and sent terrified Boyfriend to the door. All I kept thinking of was The Strangers. I was just waiting for someone to say, "Is Tamara home?" Instead of opening the door, Boyfriend closed all the curtains, killed the lights, and climbed back into bed. Fine by me. We still wonder who would be calling on us so late.
I think we will keep up this routine until Halloween rolls around, if it doesn't keep us up all night.
