I did this the other weekend.except replace "monsters" with "zombies." Someone was shooting off and I thought, "What if those are rifles? What if it's zombies?" This is why I choose not to watch scary movies! :) I've got "scary" covered.
Pet Peeve I think my son and my husband both do this. As a matter of fact I know they do. Ive been in the car with Patrick where he will tell people he is further along in the drive than we really are.
