Yes. Yes, I do.
Yesterday I was watching television and a commercial came on starring Ray Liotta and I instantly checked out. I didn’t want anything that was being sold by this guy. No way! He scares the crap out of me. I think it was for tequila too. Talk about an item I don’t want anywhere near Ray Liotta. I can’t explain it but my mind strongly believes that Ray Liotta could go from being a fun guy to hang out with to he’s going to murder you and your entire family in the blink of an eye. So yeah, let’s get that guy tequila.
I don’t even know where this irrational fear started. I like Goodfellas. I’m not obsessed with it, I’ve seen it plenty of times don’t worry, and I guess maybe his character in the movie is one of the ones I closely associate with him but that doesn’t feel exactly like it. Maybe it’s been a career of playing sleazy characters that has given me the impression that the man eats the souls of others, but for whatever reason I have an irrational fear of Ray Liotta.
I know it’s not fair either. I’m sure Ray Liotta is a perfectly fine human being. Probably really sweet, fun to drink with, and a little crazy. That’s the recipe for a really fun person, but when I see him I want to hide all the people I love. I’m not saying that Ray Liotta is my boogeyman, I don’t check under my bed for Ray Liotta, but I am saying that the dude gives me the heebie-jeebies.
This got me to thinking, maybe I’m not alone. No, I don’t mean in my irrational fear of Ray Liotta, although though I’m sure there are others of you out there who feel the same way. I mean maybe I’m not alone in the sense that maybe you have an actor or actress that the minute you see them you kind of want to tinkle a little. An actor or actress that when they come on screen you check the room you’re in for the closest available weapon. And guess what? I want to know who that actor or actress is! Don’t be shy. The comments are all yours. Tell me who you’re irrationally scared of. Let’s try to figure this out together. Maybe we can work through some weird fear issues or worse case scenario we can start a support group or share a good laugh. Both are welcome.
