Basement Vs. Attic Debate…What’s Scarier?

When you’re a kid, lots of things are scary. Monsters under the bed, a dark room, you name it.

There’s an adorable viral video making the rounds this morning of a two-year-old who is terrified of the car wash and honestly, can you blame her?

This got Carson and Producer Angie thinking about what scared them as kids.

Little did we know that this discussion would turn into a full-on morning show debate!

“I grew up in the Midwest,” Producer Angie said. “Everybody had a basement and my basement was terrifying. There were, like, nooks and crannies.”

But Carson disagreed, arguing that attics are the true terror. Angie countered, explaining that attics have a window that you can escape from.

“Angie,” he responded, “That window is the little window when you pull up to the house and you see the little girl’s face! And attics aren’t developed. All they are is rafters with the pink foam in it. Attics are way more scary. Basements are where you put ping pong tables!”

Clearly, we needed all of you to weigh in on this pressing issue. Our loyal morning show listeners flooded the phone lines with their opinions.

“Growing up Catholic,  you always heard how the devil was down below,” said Christina from Manhattan Beach. “So, I agree with Angie.”

“I still think it’s the attic,” Sydel from Winnetka explained. “Growing up we had an attic and I’d always hear like noises and stuff. I don’t know if it was just a rat or something. I would go up there and there’d be like no light. If there’s no lights, I can’t see and it’s scary…My parents didn’t even go in there.”

We seem to be stuck in a stalemate. What do you think? Vote in our poll below:
