* ApologeticAttacker: In "How a Fish Nearly Destroyed my Childhood", Allie sees the fish she brought home flopping about after all the water drained out of its pond. After an attempt to rehydrate it, she decides she needs to put it out of its misery. Unfortunately, she's only seven and not strong enough to chop off the fish's head, leaving her hacking at it and screaming apologies before eventually running inside to get her dad.



* DangerTakesABackseat: In "The Goose Story", after she and Boyfriend manage to trap an aggressive goose, they throw it in the backseat of their car. It untangles itself from the blanket she used to net it. Allie compares it to the urban legend of a serial killer hiding in the backseat, and the goose's appearance in the mirror produces a wave of horrible fear connected to it.

* HuntingTheMostDangerousGame: Poor Benny... apparently, when six year old Allie and her friends play "Wolf Pack", they take it rather seriously.

Added DiffLines:

* NothingIsScarier: Tired after the first couple rounds of "Wolves", Allie and her friends resort to stealth to hunt down poor Benny. He hears twigs snapping and growling sounds in the shadows, but sees nothing. Allie hypothesizes that the anticipation of the attack was almost worse than being attacked.


Added DiffLines:

* WouldntHurtAChild: Benny in "Wolves", which leaves him at a distinct disadvantage. He doesn't want to punch or kick a group of little girls (Allie and her friends) but they have no scruples about manhandling and biting him.

* UnsatisfiableCustomer: "The Milk Crisis of 2005" story has Allie trying to deal with an older man who is not happy with his drink. The restaurant only has two sizes of glasses; the big one is too much milk and the small one is too little milk. He's not happy even when she tries to make a medium glass by cutting some of the top off a styrofoam cup.

* BearsAreBadNews: Allie is apparently obsessed with and terrified of bears. According to "[[http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/2010/03/rural-montana-survival-guide.html The Rural Montana Survival Guide]]", you can fight dog-monsters and bulls, there's no point in fighting a bear. Bears always win.

Young Allie comes across as one remarkably often. Lampshaded in the first segment of the book, where Allie writes a letter to her five-year-old self, listing several disturbing things she's done that ordinary kids don't do and asks her to stop as it's rattling their mother.

"Wolves" features not just her but her entire group of friends acting creepy as they pursue poor Benny, who agreed to play "Wolves" with them...
