Here's what happened. When she was a kid some a-hole older neighbor boy showed her a scar on his stomach and said it was from a sniper. And she believed it. Granted she was eight years old but she is now considerably older and she STILL believes his story! And won't hear any talk about the scar being most likely from an appendectomy or a hernia. Absolutely not. He was shot by a sniper. Fact.
What is your irrational fear?* Sorry, Erin I know you don't think of it as irrational.
*Mine is practically everything. Except snipers.
