Thank you to the lovely Nickie over at Typecast for tagging me in the latest meme doing the rounds of the blogosphere – What are you afraid of? This one is ideal for me because I’m a bit of a worrier by nature so I’m afraid of lots of things, most of them irrational.
The two that make Mr Frugal laugh are my kitchen cupboard fear and my straight stair phobia so rather than bore you by telling you about my ‘normal’ fear of spiders (evil creatures), injections (had a bad experience) and rollercoasters (what the point of them) I thought I would tell you about my weird phobias. Before I do though, be warned – they will sound completely ridiculous to anyone but me!
When I was younger I used to dread the big Christmas shop that my dad used to do as I was terrified the kitchen cupboards would fall off the walls with the weight of the stuff!!! Even now, I’m really careful about what goes in my cupboards and only buy what I know we need because I don’t want to put too much in there.
I hate straight stairs and even though we’ve moved house four times in the last ten years, none of our houses have had straight stairs in them. No matter how much I like a house, if the stairs are straight it would be off my list. I’d like to sound all grown up and say it’s because I am into Feng Shui and all that but it’s not – I just have straight stair phobia 😉 I wonder if there’s a technical name for that?
I bet you think I’m weird now don’t you?
Well now I’m going to tag lots of you lovelies so I can learn all about you 😉
