"I have this strange uncontrollable fear come over me, every time a phone rings..."
Do you think a simple phone call, could scare a child for life?
Put yourself in his shoes...
Your 3ft tall.
The phone suddenly makes a loud siren like noise. Everyone within hearing distance (which is anyone with ears, because our house is so small) is startled. They drop everything they are doing & RUN!! Your in a panic because everyone is running. Your scared, confused, sometimes pushed or trampled on. You have memories of the last time this happened, when everyone ran and left you in a room all alone. You try to run as fast as you can to keep up. Although with everyone going different directions, looking for the handset, you don't know who to follow.
All you can do is cry "It's okay and Uppie", and hope someone comes by and grabs you.
Sad isn't it? For all he knows the phone is the Boogie man.
