    Right.

    "When I opened my eyes and saw the vampire at the window, all the hair on the back of my neck stood on end."

    "She was so cold that she was shivering and covered in goose bumps."

    "As i crept along the dark forest path, every rustle in the bushes gave me goose bumps of fear."

    "In the scary movie, the last scene was so eerie that the hair on my arms stood on end."

    Here's a cartoon showing people whose hair REALLY stood on end in a big way! Notice that the movie poster promises "FRIGHT"

    Re: To Get Goosebumps

    In my experience, you can get goosebumps from intense emotion - something very thrilling as well as frightening. Barber's Adagio for Strings gives me goosebumps.

    (And of course it's just a physical reaction when you're cold.)

    There are tiny muscles that make hair stand up. Lots of mammals have this; apparently it's useful to look larger than you really are when you happen to notice that something big wants to make you lunch. Many mammals fluff up their fur as insulation when they are cold. (Birds fluff up their feathers the same way.)

    Those same muscles pull the skin up into goosebumps when we feel cold or have strong emotions. They also account for that tingly feeling, or a feeling that the "flesh is crawling."

    Cats are famous for their ability to make their hair stand on end.

    LOL!

    When I was a newborn baby, my father was away for the evening and my mother was all alone in the house with me. She was reading Bram Stoker, and getting more and more horrified every second. She was so absorbed in the story that she didn't notice that her legs had fallen asleep (the obstetrician told her to prop her feet up whenever she could.)

    Just when her hair was standing on end from horror, the door flew open!

    She jumped to her feet -- but all she could do was stagger and reel around on dead-feeling stumps because her legs had fallen asleep.

    There stood my father watching in amazement as my mother did her wild lurch all around the room.



    I can just picture him thinking, "Now what?"

    Anyway, I read Dracula loooooong before vampires became popular, like they are now. In fact, now I have to stop liking vampires just because they're popular.

    I hate being trendy.
