Default How to scare Mia

Method 1.

1) Turn off all the lights.

2) turn on your macbook.

3) turn off the tv.

4) Reflect the glowing apple logo in the tv screen and start moving it around (this = ghost to Mia)

Method 2.

1) Find a turtle swimming in a pond.

Yes Mia is afraid of swimming turtles.

Haha, its ok, Benji is afraid of box turtles. He won't go near them!! I keep telling him he's basically afraid of a living rock, but he won't listen.

Xena had a barking fit about a turtle one time. I'm not sure if she was trying to protect me from it or not. It wasn't doing much, just setting on the curb.

That's a turtle for you. They don't tend to be overly athletic.

We have aggressive snapping turtles here. It's GOOD to be afraid of turtles -- especially in the water where they're faster than you are.
