v. to bewitch
As a child, I grew up mostly fearless of the things that children are normally scared of. For example, I wasn’t afraid of the dark, or spiders, or even the dentist! I could never answer the question: “What scares you the most?” and I still can’t answer that question now. I was always curious about the things that frightened others. My little brother wouldn’t venture into the basement alone, so I’d have to go with him and lead the way. I was fascinated by the creepy crawlies that found their way into abode and it was my duty to safely bring them back outside. Going to the dentist was something I looked forward to, while all my friends would complain about the horrors they would face with each cavity their dentist uncovered. Fear was something I explored rather than something I hid from.
