22. The back seat of the car at night

"Getting into a dark, quiet, spooky, cold car. There's a couple of seconds, before the engine starts and you switch the radio on and put your seat belt on and adjust the mirror (on second thoughts, don't adjust the rear view mirror) when anything could be lurking in the back seat. And every bone in your body is telling you hurry up and get moving, because once you get moving, nothing bad can happen."
