Hello there. It’s Josh K. here again. First off I wanted to thank Kindertrauma for posting my Freddy’s Nightmares trauma a while back. It was great to hear what all of you had to say!
However, this time I am going to FINALLY put this “Name that Trauma” out there. I have debated doing this for a very long time now, thinking that no one out there would possibly get it if I couldn’t through the Internet, but I’m really hoping you guys can help me figure this one out, so here goes:
This time I was at my other Grandparents’ house (what is it with Grandparents and traumas? Lol). It was either the very late ’80s or early ’90s. My Dad and my Grandpa were watching some movie. As far as I can remember, there was this Japanese or Chinese emperor looking guy who apparently was evil. My mind wants to say that this took place during some grand ceremony like a wedding. Anyway, the good guy comes in with some sort of weapon and either hacks off the evil guy’s finger or one of his huge nails ( I can’t remember which). However, then the good guy does it a couple more times and the emperor keeps looking at his fingers/nails each time and screams. My Dad and Grandpa thought this was hysterical, and I do remember it being more funny than traumatic now that I think about it.. But the mysteriousness of it has haunted me throughout the years and I would love to finally put the mystery to rest.
I am REALLY hoping someone can help me shed some light on this for me.
