Nathaniel Weller123#25Reading5.9.13 My Boogeyman Story I have not been told a Boogeyman story, nor have I had a Boogeyman experience. With that being said I will do my best to create a good Boogeyman story/experience. When I was younger my mom used to tell me that if I didn't act good that the Boogeyman would come and get me while I was asleep. He would reach out from the space between my bed and the wall and grab me, take me down to the never ending depths of hell and torture me until I would do as I was told. So I was a good boy from there on. I would always do my homework first thing after school and eat all of my vegetables at dinner. However I was always scared that the Boogeyman would one night just come up and take me away forever. So I made sure that I was extra good, I was going to flourish and become a better person. I noticed something bizarre though, that the more things I did to impress my mom, the more things she said about the Boogeyman. Each thing I did she said something darker about him, so my plan was a fiasco. My mom was insidious, her skills were impressive and very sneaky. She knew exactly what I was doing and how to stop it. Yet it made no sense, why would she want to scare me even more, its only going to make me go back to my old ways. Once I stopped being good, the Boogeyman got me and now I live in hell with him. Hes actually a pretty cool guy once you get to know him. Anyways, that is my Boogeyman story/experience. BYE! How Far Back In History Does The Boogeyman Go? I could not find how far back the Boogeyman goes in history. I looked all over the internet and could not find anything. However, I did find that the Boogeyman is an amorphous imaginary being used by adults to frighten children into compliant behaviour. Which i think is machavelious of them to do to us. Different countries do have their own Boogeyman to.
