I have one, well ok maybe a few, but since it is 'that time again' my phobia of 'stingers' comes back. I am hypersensitive to bee or wasp stings and I run VERY fast if I detect one and since I am hyper-sensitive I detect lots of them.
I am supposed to be planting in the garden right now but one of the blighter's is in my shed!
Horses of all things. No idea why, not had a bad experience with them or anything, but they turn me into a gibbering wreck.
Where I used to live, there was a small bit of grass area beside the road where one of the local residents would stand a couple of horses to graze. I had to walk past these on my way to the pub I worked (and drank!) at. There is apparently nothing more amusing than watching a 17st pierced and tattooed skinhead backed up against the opposite wall, and sidling down the road whimpering. One of them buggers neighed at me once then made a "br-br-br-br-brub" sound. The only sound you could hear after that was the small thunderclap or returning air as I hit supersonic speed on my way down the road and the squelching of my underwear.
Bats. I don't do bats *shudders* It's really pathetic, as I have no bad childhood experiences informing my phobia, but it's very real. I can't look at a picture in a book of a bat, definitely have to turn over quickly if there are bats on TV and being in the tropics at dusk makes me very uncomfortable indeed.
bennyhillslovechild. Once again Thanks for the laugh... Now we all know what you look like. Dare I ask what causes the squelching of the underpants?. I can't think of any phobias that I have. I suppose I am afraid of dying, but then aren't we all?
