It’s hard to scare a child with a tax return just as it’s hard to scare and adult with a witch.
However, everyone is afraid of something and those things might change over time. As children we sometime imagine our fears, the ghoul under the bed, the creaky door that sounds like arrival of impending doom, etc.
As adults things scare us less but they are replaced by a different set of fears, usually in the form of Bills, work no work etc.
Which begs the question why are we always so afraid of things? What does it really accomplish?
