  1. my weirdest fear --- perhaps it's a weird aversion rather than a fear --- but i HATE having sticky hands. as in, i don't peel oranges to avoid the whole fiasco of sticky in between my fingers and under the nails. ugh. nastiness. (thankfully my husband is an orange-peeling pro ;)

  2. I absolutely hate loose strands of wet hair that you can't get off of you!!! like when you run your fingers through your wet hair and come out with a few strands woven into your fingers-- it literally makes me want to gag.

  3. Oh, I'm a follower. I laugh at you daily. And with you. But mostly at you. Because you're funny.

  4. I abhor things that are too soft. Like Baby blankets that feel like they have too much fabric softener added. It literally makes me CRINGE. If I accidently touch something that is too soft, I have to immediately rub my hands together and touch something else. I'm all twitchy just thinking about it. (But, swear I'm not weird. Just differently minded that most.)

  6. I really hate wet clothing sticking to my body. It grosses me out and I can't even move!

  7. My strangest fear is birds!! I can't stand them!

  8. Vultures. I have a reocurring dream about having my flesh ripped off by vultures. And of course I fear any stain on my carpet. The thought of a stain on my carpet makes me sweat!

  9. I reallllly hate wet hair. I can't stand to get dressed while my hair's still wet, and I just don't like touching it, in general.
    Which, considering I'm in cosmetology school, is a bit ironic...

  10. Great white sharks in the swimming pool, yes I am afraid of them and yes, I know that a shark could never survive in an chlorine pool, but I still fear them.I was so convinced that there was a shark in the pool that as a child I would never go in the pool alone I always made sure there was at least one other person (usually one of my sisters) in the pool with me, so they could get eaten/attacked first leaving me time to escape, I never thought it could happen the other way around as I was a child with a simple mind and large imagination. I didn't tell anyone about the shark in the pool until I was an adult because I knew they would laugh at me, and and they did.

  11. I cannot abide that sucking-in sound people make when, say, they're taking the last sip out of a pop can. Or sucking in air through their teeth. The sound affects me like nails on a blackboard - my body recoils and I get instant goosebumps (in a bad way). My husband has been well-trained to avoid making this sound at all costs. ...Well, you asked for weird, right?

  12. I'm afraid of maggots jumping out of over-ripe fruit when I slice it! It happened once with a mango, and the thought of it still terrifies me.

  13. I am repulsed by squeaky cotton between my teeth. Spiney chills just thinking about that. Can you picture putting a towel in your mouth and it squeaking between your teeth? Yeah, that's the feeling.

    Now I can't stop cringing. Thanks. It is a good thing those earrings are so lovely, else this repulsion wouldn't be worth it...

  14. Mine is wet wood. I HATE washing wooden spoons! *shiver*

  15. I am repulsed by the sound of clicking teeth. Not like when people are eating, and their teeth happen to click together. No, I'm talking when people consciously force their jaws to click together. I can't even accurately describe it but the sound -- and watching it! -- makes me freak out in ways I can't describe.
