Today I found myself tearing fabric for one of my displays.
A snip with the scissors and then tearing the linen apart like I’d seen my mother do numerous times as I child, while I watched her sew. A task I normally try to avoid because, well, I hate that sound.
It’s almost worse than a scream. Something in the pitch that makes it creepy. Surround yourself with puppets and marionettes while doing so makes it even more unsettling.
The most unsettling sound to you? The most irritating?
