Even a blanket around my shoulders will do, because obviously when the crazy dog comes through the door said blanket will afford me incalculable protection. Therefore, anyway, I have to sleep on my back and stand or sit with my back close to something handy like a wall or chair.
Similarly, I'm neurotic about doors. They have to be closed. If the room has a door it has to be closed. Leaving it open is...god knows what could come through there! The crazy dog will come right in and you'll have no WARNING!
changed to reflect how rediculous my fear of dogs is. on the fifth floor of a very secure office building, i am worried that a dog has somehow gotten in and made it up into one of the dark corners, or dark offices that i pass on my rounds. Or that one will be waiting for me when the elevator opens. Its that element of surprise i dont like, but some nights my imgination gets so out of hand i have to use every bit of my self control to keep from sprinting down the hallways back to the brightest area of the building.
i'm a freaking security guard and i'm scared of dogs in the building. its retarded. *I* locked those doors. I *know* there are no dogs in here!
