Weird Word Wednesday!

My word for tonight, "nyctophobia", is an interesting one. I don't suffer from nyctophobia really. I don't fear the night or the darkness itself, but I fear bumping into things and/or tripping over things in the dark! My night vision is extra bad because I have glaucoma, quite advanced in one eye. I gave up night driving awhile back due to this problem too. Even though I don't fear the night, I wouldn't go out walking by myself in the dark. But that's just using wisdom, I suppose? Okay, there are my random thoughts related to tonight's weird word. What are yours?

I live in the country. I like the dark so I unplugged the yard light. When my Mom lived with me she commented on how black it got out the minute the sun set. It is super dark for sure. Not like town where there lights keep true dark away.
I like learning new words. To be honest, never heard of nyctophobia. Thank you for sharing this with me. I don't fear the night. But it would be awful to wake up and having to go to the bathroom and walk upon some big snake in the hallway or some other scary creeping thing. I have heard of snakes getting into people's house. I'm glad we never had that problem. I pray we never do.
