Thursday Thirteen

Thursday Thirteen Header Courtesy of Goofy Girl
Thirteen Weird Little Fears I Have or Have Had In the Past

1. Everytime I walk by one of those grate things that catch water runoff in a parking lot, I hold my keys a little tighter because I'm scared I'm going to drop them into the grate, never to be seen again.
2. I CAN NOT touch foam rubber. It sends chills up and down my spine. I don't know why, but you better not come near me with the stuff.
3. I've always been terrified that I'm going to rear-end a policeman. That to me would be the worst.
4. I hate the chain saw people at haunted hauses on Halloween. Anything else I can handle, but keep your chainsaw out of my face.
5. I'm always afraid I'm going to step on a snake when I walk down to our lake. (This one isn't really irrational because my mom has done it, but still, its a fear)
6. When I go to the doctor, I always think they're gonna tell me I'm not sick. Even when I have a hacking cough and a high fever. I'm always afraid they're gonna tell me there is no reason for it. I really don't know why.
7. Until I get inside a concert or an amusement park or something, I'm always afraid they're gonna tell me something is wrong with my ticket or something and I won't be able to go in.
8. I don't like to stop at out of the way stop signs late at night when there is someone behind me because I'm afraid they'll rearend me, and I'll be stuck there in the middle of nowhere with a stranger.
9. Then I'm afraid that if I don't stop at the stop sign that I'll get a ticket because it would be my luck that the person behind me was a cop.
10. I'm always nervous about singing in weddings and funerals. Those are two things you really don't want to mess up.
11. When I used to have bad dreams as a child, I was terrified to move. I would lay in my bed and try to be as quiet as I could, hoping that whatever was in my room wouldn't know I was there.
12. When I was younger if someone got home later than they were supposed to, I always thought the worst. I'm a little more positive about things now, but there are still times when the worrier in me takes over.
13. I'm terrified about going near woods at night. I don't like it, and I won't go alone if I have to go anywhere near them.

I definitely do #1. I also make sure my left hand is in a fist so that my engagement and wedding rings do not slip off- weird!

Girl you worry about too many things!LOL I do agree with #1. That is a very worrisome thing! Ok and stepping on a snake would just be tramatic!

Kelly Klepfer said...

I'm all over number #1 too! Must be a universal thing, or maybe we need to widen our circle. Ha.

Carmen said...

I'm scared of dropping my keys down those grates too. Images of me with a stick with gum on the end trying to get them out. :)

Christine said...

Spiders! I'm deathly afraid of spiders, and my wedding ring slipping off into the sink, I take it off everytime I wash my hands.Definetly afraid of stepping on a snake.

Just Expressing Myself said...

I used to do the lay quietly in my bed thing too.

Take care,

GiBee said...

Hey -- we have two guest rooms with queen sized beds ... wanna stay with me when you come? If so, who else?? And, no rubber foam mattresses here!

OH MY GOODNESS ... why are you messing with a policeman's rear end anyway, little missy?

Hey, you'd better double check your tickets to Kings fest, because I hear there is something wrong with them!

Mom Nancy said...

Not all of these seem strange. In fact, I would worry about stopping at stop sign in the middle of nowhere with someone behind me or the snake thing!

Thanks for visiting my TT!

janice said...

I am with you on 7 and 12. And i have never thought about rear ending a policeman. hmmm - new thing to fear. and stoppping in the middle of nowhere can be very concerning.

Kristen said...

I have the same fear about people getting home later than they are supposed to. I've always had that fear and still do!

wrigley said...

i've been a little morbid thinker myself. i sometimes wince while seeing an accident happen in my head.

my 13's up!

PixiePincessMom said...

Some of those are definately good ones to worry about. One has to always be careful these days........ sadly.

I'm definately one that can not sleep ro settle down for the night until I know everyone is where they are suppose to be!
