Terror, and pie

Things that freak me out:  [insert scary music here]

1) Clocks whose second hands glide rather than tick.

With a ticking clock, the seconds hand is constantly doing little stops.
Like walking down a flight of stairs.  Plenty of time to stop and look at the view.

But with the gliding kind, time is always on the move!
Like you're on a slide, plummeting towards the end of your life at an ever-increasing rate!


2)  The passing of time.  (This is closely related to number 1).

"I don't know where the time goes".  You hear people say that a lot.

But I know where the time goes:

Things that don't freak me out:

1) Graphs.
Ahhh...there's just nothing scary about a graph.
Like a pie graph, for instance.
A pie graph is like a clock, but without the scary hands.  Or like an apple pie, but without the delicious filling.

And they all lived happily ever after.  [insert scary music again here]
