I’m scared of the carousel! But shhh it’s a secret

Shhhh it's a Secret

Today’s prompt is the tell a secret about myself. I’ve previously shared a secret about myself so I didn’t really have another. I may not have mentioned this before but I have an irrational fear of the carousel.

Secret Fear of Carousel?

I know that there’s nothing to be scared of but the fear stems from being a small child. I was on one with Dad when I was a small child and between the noise and the movement. I have a memory of there being a lot of noise and that I had a complete meltdown whilst on the ride. I also have a memory that my Dad threw me off the ride and my Mam caught me.

The problem is, because I was so small, I’m not entirely sure if these memories are real! They’re real enough for me to give carousels a wide berth even now. Although I did summon up the courage to stand near one whilst Dadi and Little Miss went on one recently.

Have you got a secret or an irrational fear?

    Aww! Bless you! I don’t but this made me think of my youngest. She is scared of the teacup rides…She fell of the seat in one when she was little and it’s really put her off x

    Slides do me – normal slides are fine but any tunnel slide, water slide or those awful death drop slides and I am out. I would never go down them as a child and I still won’t now.

    I am sorry to hear that and I think it is really very interesting and most of kids and adults would like to ride the carousel rides.
    Thanks for your great share! 🙂
