New Series – Pegged-Jean Nightmares.

The author at 12 years old.

On Monday 2012 reaches October, and we all count down to the grinning Jack O’Lantern waiting for us on the 31st.

I wanted my site to have some sort of countdown toward Halloween, and I decided to make this one personal.

Every day in October, I will be posting a short piece about one thing that scared me as I was growing up. As a child of the late 80s/early 90s, I’m naming this piece “Pegged Jean Nightmares” in honor of the way we tight-rolled our jeans back in the day.

If you can remember pegged jeans, you might have been scared by a lot of the same things that scared me. Some of them are specific TV shows, films, stories, and books. Others are experiences or stories you probably remember, too. A few of them I’ve never heard anyone else talk about. Some of them had everyone spooked, and some seemed to only scare me.

Hopefully, Pegged Jean Nightmares will be a month-long Halloween party of memories, embarrassments, and laughs. In other words, I hope you enjoy reading these entries half as much as I will enjoy writing them. Comments encouraged!
