Earnestly Scared Stupid

When I was a little girl (about 8 years old) I saw Ernest Scared Stupid for the first time. I think it is without a doubt, the best Halloween movie in the entire galaxy. My favorite scene stars Ernest trying to figure out what destroys the troll. He comes to the conclusion that meack (me-ack) is the answer to end the terror of the small booger-faced monsters. Of course, it’s not meack but milk. But meack couldn’t take down the King daddy of booger lips. Only love could destroy the ultimate troll.

Ernest TrollI was so afraid of this movie that I had a real difficult time going outside and when I did, I carried my brother’s baseball bat. My imagination taunted me as I walked down the driveway for the mail because I was sure that booger lips had crammed himself into our standard-sized mailbox, and he was going to turn me into a wooden statue when I opened the door.

What a dork!

Beetlejuice was pretty awesome too, but way more scary to me back then. I hear it now, “Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beeltejuice!” I used to imagine him in the curtains of our bedroom while everyone else was sleeping. It was awful (and wonderful) to have such a strong imagination.

    Haha! That’s funny, you thought there was a troll in the mailbox. I used to think that witch from Hocus Pocus was going to poison me in my sleep. Nice post. Can’t believe you used to live in Eagle’s Bluff. Beautiful place!
