Wall People

Do you ever have those moments when something very weird or shocking seems to be happening and then you realize it isn't?  It is usually something terrifying to you and hysterically funny to others.  For example, Boy 2 said to me the other night, "I just thought I had a toe on the side of my foot."  I looked.  He didn't have an extra toe, it just seemed that way to him for a minute.  One of my co-workers thought there was a cat in her living room for a second then she realized it was a dust bunny.  Boy 1 had that happen one night:


"Whoh!" is right! Or, like a few days ago, Boy 1 was in his room digging around in the mess in his closet and I happened to be beside the living room wall which backs the closet.  So, naturally, I knocked on the wall.  He came running out of his room like he was on fire.  He did this fantastic baseball slide around the corner and started down the five stairs to the living room when he looked up and saw me standing there, laughing.  He says, "Oh, thank god, I thought someone was in the wall."  See what I mean?  Terrifying if you think there is someone in the wall, hysterically funny to the other person!  Is that funny or  is that mean?  Little Column A, Little Column B?  And does this happen to anyone else or just the clowns at this house?
