Ever been proper scared?
Last night, during a show called ‘The Generation of Z’, at the Edinburgh Fringe. It was an interactive show akin to ‘Alien Wars’ if you know what I mean. As we were being screamed at by the soldiers to get out of the room it was all a bit of a laugh, but when the zombies smashed through the barricaded door behind us and the soldiers started blasting away with their guns right beside me….. I kind of left my mates standing. 😳
I may not sleep this week. 😥
Thoroughly, thoroughly recommend it though. A brilliant show with superb actors and very….visceral scenes. When I was walking through the ‘medical centre’ and realised my feet were sticky from blood…..bleurgh. Actually, make that two weeks!
Hope your sleepless for the same silly reasons as me. If not, all the best mate. 8)

Went into fire earlier this year to drag out a bloke I could hear dying. Had no hose with me as it was difficult to access. Found him using my ears and hands as couldn’t see a thing. Got to him but couldn’t then find the door to get back out as id followed the noise rather than feel round the room layout. Quite scary if im honest. Found it in the end following noise of my gaffer shouting for me at the door and feel. Unfortunately the guy died 2 weeks later 🙁
We normally follow the hose back out the door as you know it goes back to safety. A bit of a wake up call when its not therePosted 3 years agoNobeerinthefridgeSubscriber
Not me, but mrs Nobeer. 3am one summer night, windows open in our old flat to let some cool air in. Wee gust of wind pushes the venetians, which pushes a big glass vase off the window sill, and drops onto the wooden floor. You can imagine the noise.
She done a fantastic scooby doo impersonation, jumping into my arms, shaking like a leaf. Never slept a wink all night after that!Posted 3 years agoeat_more_cheeseMember
Sailing a 30ft boat in the Bay of Biscay, miles from land through the middle of a violent electrical storm. When you’re the only object for miles around with a 50ft tall metal pole, it’s crap thee pants time. I was truly bricking it.
Edit-all the best for the surgeryPosted 3 years agoallthegearMember
Yeah – I was ridiculously scared when I went to have some surgery. I actually nearly walked out of the pre-med room (I wasn’t wheeled down there – we walked).
In the end, it was really no big deal. It seems my imagination is much worse than reality.
You’ll be fine, Ton!!

going in for heart surgary on wednesday…..proper shitting myself now.
I’m not a doctor, but I think, from what I read on here once, that it’s when you’re going in for a camera up the bum that you are supposed to spend the preceding days shitting yourself, not heart surgery.
I hope it goes well for you on Wednesday despite this error.
