Today I saw a show on television where the main character was afraid of milk. Last night, an article I read in People Magazing recently featured a woman who was afraid of bananas and a man who was terrified of a cartoon icon. Spiders just aren’t good enough anymore, are they? 🙂
Just to add my own to the list, I have a great fear of being killed by a train. Not *in* a train, mind you. I’m afraid that a train will hit a vehicle that I’m driving or riding in. I’m sure this happens more frequently than I care to know, but it’s still an odd fear. The strangest, though, is that I’m terrified of anything mouldy. When I was living on my own two years ago I found a loaf of mouldy bread in my pantry. My best friend, always a dear man, had to come over, put the bread in a bag so that I couldn’t see it and then carry it to the bin outside. After that, I had to examine the pantry very careful with quite alot of light in order to make *sure* no traces of the bread remained. And of course everything on that shelf had to be checked as well. Just a slight fear.
What are your strange fears?
