When I was a kid, I was scared of escalators. I was terrified of the sharp "teeth" at the top and bottom, and I was convinced that if I didn't step off fast enough, I'd be sucked in and shredded to bits.

It was so bad, that my dad had to patiently teach me to get on, get off, get on, get off, go with the flow, get on, get off. And eventually I got over my fear of the escalator -- though even now, I take care not to step off too close to the edge.

Today, my shoelace got caught at the bottom, and was stuck for a few critical moments before I could tug myself loose. I didn't get sucked in. I didn't get shredded. I SURVIVED. HOORAY.

Now, let's not talk about the time I was scared that a water-monster would pop up from the bowl and drag me down, if I sat on the toilet too long...
