That blasted ticking... *tick, tick, tick*
It is the single most creepy sound I have ever heard in the middle of the night.
Do you know how creepy it is when you're lying in bed trying to sleep, and that infernal ticking noise breaks through what should be silence?
Maybe it the thought of every second ticking away from my life at each *tick* (though that's more of a subconscious thought, not really an actual thought).
Maybe I just have issues :P
Whatever it is, it's the weirdest thing.
Clock, you annoy me.
