3 Days, 3 Quotes Challenge | Day 2

Dear Blog,

Reggie over at From Private to Public tagged me in a three days, three quotes challenge, and we’re here on Day 2! Not to my surprise, but I’ve already broken one of the rules thanks to my lack of reading skills (and I want to be an English teacher??? Gurl, please!), so because I only nominated one person to do the challenge on the first day, I have to play catch up and nominate five people today! Here we go:

The Rules:

  • Thank the person who nominated you.
  • Post a quote for three consecutive days (1 quote for each day).
  • Share why this quote appeals so much to you.
  • Nominate 3 5 different bloggers for each day today. (Don’t mess up again, Liz!)

My quote for today is:

“Ain’t nothing like a little fear to make a paper man crumble.” ~Officer Bowers (Source: Pexels; edited for Dear Blog, … Love, Liz)

Why This Quote Appeals to Me:

I love the new It remake! It’s funny, suspenseful, and totally creepy! I didn’t notice this quote the first time or the second time I watched it, but the third time, I heard this quote crystal clear and it stuck with me ever since!

Background: Henry Bowers is the son of Officer Bowers and, ironically, the town bully. He instills fear in the weak by chasing them with his car, carving his name into their flesh, and other bullying tactics, but it’s all out of fear of his own father, your typical hard a** town cop. I love this quote because as a kid, I was bullied and I never understood how other kids could be so incredibly mean to me when I did nothing to them! Now I know… It’s like when a little dog barks like a crazy person at a bigger dog, to assert their dominance. Henry Bowers and my bullies were bullying because of some instilled fear by an authority figure. They come off tough as nails and unstoppable, but really, inside, they’re just made of paper, a substance so easy to crumble into a ball and throw in the garbage. We’re all afraid of something, but some people just don’t know how to handle their fear.

I challenge:

  1. carves name into skin. Yeah, a totally normal bullying tactic…haha. I can’t watch IT. I’m terrified of clowns. I can’t even like see pictures of them of them without getting super anxious.

    1. Right! Now that I think about it, there isn’t one “normal” character in that movie! I’m afraid of clowns, too, but not to that extent.


      1. It was really entertaining. I think they added just enough comedy and far-out effects, to match the horror of it.

        But it will never have the effect on me as the first one did. That was the first scary movie I saw, and it kept me up all night! Lol

      2. Me too! My grandma put it on for me and was like “oh, a clown movie, no big deal!” And I came by 30 minutes later and was like “grandma, this is not a nice clown!” That’s my experience with the first IT!
