oversized, large head-ed, mute characters scare the bejeezus outta me

I am not afraid of many things.
Just snakes.
And rodents.
Bumps in the night.

And theme park oversized, large head-ed, mute characters.

They terrify me. Always have, always will.
I just never fell for the whole gimmick and no one could convince me that these large, mute creatures were real.....and friendly.

To this day, I do not enjoy them and cannot pretend to.
So when there is one around, I make sure I am no where near them, and hide discreetly behind my understanding husband.
Understanding=laughing hysterically at his wimpy wife.

But anyways, I think I have done a fabulous job hiding my fear from my children because just last night we were at the worst place in the world Chuck E Cheese.
We were the only family in the building when out came the oversized rodent himself.

As I hid behind my husband, this happened.
Do I let them know that they should be fearful of them or continue to pretend that it is perfectly normal to hug a ginormous costume????

I don't have a fear of ginormous headed mute characters - but Chuck E Cheese always creeped me out! The fact that you were the only family in there amazes me though - every time I've ever been there it's been teeming with children - to the point of total insanity.

Aw, just let them have fun. ;)

I can't say that I blame you. Overgrown mute rodents are pretty creepy. Personally, I find clowns more terrifying.

I think it's good that they are not scared.

But me? I'm pretty much in your camp...

My son is scared ... as his mama. Actually, I'm not so much scared as freaked out as I'm sure there is a sweaty naked man inside all those costumes.

And I HATE Chuck E. Cheese.
