Fears.

Everyone has fears.
But I'm not talking about the boogeyman.
Or emotional stuff.
I'm talking about the every day stuff.

Here are mine:
  • Roaches.  Ugh, I hate even typing the word.  They're so disgusting.  When Hurricane Ike hit a few years back, my apartment became infested with them.  It was the scariest environment imaginable.  Name that movie.  Thank goodness for a husband (fiance at the time) that came to the rescue every time he found me sitting on the kitchen counter, holding the dog and crying.  Not joking.
  • Chalk.  Okay, now I know this seems a little weird.  I wouldn't say I'm afraid of it.  But you couldn't pay me to touch it.  I sat in the back of the college classrooms that didn't have whiteboards, because it was all I could handle.  And this is why I didn't become a teacher.
  • Velvet.  And micro suede.  Anything of that texture.  This is actually something only my hubby & family know about me.  I can't touch it.  Mr. BUB actually found a gorgeous living room set a while back, but we couldn't buy it because I wouldn't ever sit on it.  Or touch it.
And there you have it.
The three things that you could use against me.

What are yours?

I can't do velvet either. For some reason whenever I've touched it I immediately get this feeling that it's in my mouth and it grosses me out. Lol weird I know but I can't stand velvet.

I love our micro suede sofa!! I don't hate chalk, but nails on a chalkboard make me cringe!

Roaches are so disgusting. I've been watching this show on Animal Planet called Infested! and about half of them have been roaches or spiders. *shudders*

My fears: spiders, tornadoes, getting in a car accident, and house fires.

Leslie said...

The way you feel about velvet..I feel about cotton balls!!! I can not stand to touch them, think about them, look at them... It is so weird! When I am getting a pedicure and they are taking polish off, I have to look away and concentrate on something else!

SimplyHeather said...

I can definitely agree with you about being afraid of roaches!! I also don't like spiders and any of those creepy crawlers! LOL

tara said...

Lol. You are officially WEIRD. My fears: frogs, frogs.. And? FROGS. Yuck.

Jennifer B said...

I am deathly afraid of butterflies!!!

Sami said...

I have a very odd fear of Cottage Cheese. I won't eat it. I've tried and the texture just freaks me out to no end. Same with tapioca pudding. Gross.

Nichole said...

I effing HATE roaches. I'm originally from NY state but here in FL, it's common to find one of those critters anywhere no matter how clean you are. I freak out any time I see one! I'd be like you crying if my place had been infested, OMG

MK said...

Snakes and mice creep me the eff out!

Ashley Paige said...

ooh! theres this one particular type of fabric I can't touch either. and reading about chalk, that makes my tongue feel like its swelling up and I can TASTE the chalk. hate it too.

and for me- sand paper/construction paper. Mom used to have to do all my projects that required construction paper. i CANNOT touch either of those, or listen to the sound of them rubbing on something.

I have a huge fear of spiders (like a lot of people)...i once found one on my bed and didn't sleep in it for a week. Also I am deathly afraid of car washes...i hyperventilate if i go through them...my parents just got their car washed with me a few months ago and i got out and stood in the freezing cold instead.

Finaly, someone else who has the velvet 'issue' - I thought I was the only one!

Whitney said...

I don't really like velvet either, but my real fears are spiders (seriously, even typing it makes my skin crawl), clowns (ugh), and birds (something new I've developed since moving to Houston! lol).

Cait said...

i hate spiders and i hate clothes that are itchy! lol.

Heather said...

Roaches give me the creepy crawlies. They're just so NASTY!!

Megan said...

My mom is deathly terrified of roaches. It's bad.

Melinda@LookWhatMomFound...and Dad too! said...

I'm with your with roaches, chalk I understand but I love me some Velvet. I hate styrofoam the frost that builds up in our freezer in the garage.

Melinda@LookWhatMomFound...and Dad too! said...

oh and capybaras, just giant rats, UGH, makes me shutter

Katie said...

Omg-- roaches gross me out. I can handle spiders and other bugs, but ewwww roaches.

Jessica Renee said...

Roaches FO SHO are at the top of my list. Any kind of bug really. Uuugh I'm freaking out just thinking about it.

Betty said...

Oh my. Do I ever agree with you on roaches!! Whenever I see one, I just get as far away as I can and still see it, curl up in a fetal position and call for backup! (When I was little my Grandaddy used to ask me if I wanted to eat the roaches he killed...ever since, can't stand them!)

Nikki said...

I don't consider it a 'fear' but I can't stand mushy foods (jello, pudding, ice cream, etc).

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

Snakes. Just the sight of them on tv or in pictures freaks me out! I also have a fear of having to number 2 and not being able to find a bathroom.

Wiz said...

My biggest fear is someone throwing up. I can seriously have major anxiety about it! (And yet I am a mom.) But here is the weird thing. It doesnt make me sick and I could clean it up, but if someone says they think they are going to get sick, I stress until I am away from them. If someone in my family is exposed to a stomach bug, I freak for three days. My husband will try to hide not feeling well from me because I freak out so much....so I am a total weirdo. Spiders too.

RAY J said...

I have an Indiana Jones level of fear when it comes to snakes. Actually, I think mine is probably worse - I'd probably curl up in a ball in the snake pit and just die from all the freaking out I'd be doing, nor would I be able to use one as a rope to pull myself out of quicksand! Seriously, they creep me out and I'm deathly terrified of them!

I also have an irrational fear of feet that aren't mine and surprisingly Jay's! All other feet are just gross! And worn socks are equally disgusting.
