Again, I say he had an huge, oversized head and neck so wide that his head seemed to be sitting directly on his shoulders. The only time I noticed his neck was during his fit of rage when his veins bulged out so far, I thought that they were going to burst.The deep, leathery creases in his forehead hung down over his cold, dark chocolate-brown eyes in such a way that it would have been physically impossible for him to change his ferocious countenance and he had a wide, flattened, pudgy, scrunched up nose.

To a child he was tall, big, ugly and scary. Fear can come in many forms and we should not just think fear is in the form of monsters only. Open your eyes and can you understand why so many kids can fear their elders? I can.
