Yar. It's a good thing my sister wasn't sitting here just now. A fairly large spider suddenly dropped down from the ceiling, dangled in the air for a few moments, then landed on my monitor and started crawling around it. For me, the only start I got was the initial shock - but I get that from anything that sneaks up on me. After that I watched it for a bit, then caught it in a cup and released it outside (I generally don't kill bugs, unless its an accident or a mosquito >.>). My sister on the other hand would've freaked. She's arachnophobic. Freezes up or screams/freaks out even if she sees a freakin' pen-tip sized spider. A close friend of mine is also the same way, and I'm sure some of you - or people you know - are too. Phobias are teh fun. I guess I do have my own phobia, though. I don't like "bees". My definition of bees includes wasps and hornets, tho. I'm alright watching them through a window (though seeing a hive on TV makes my skin crawl), but when I'm outside and a bee flies by I can't help but react. The reaction can be anywhere from quietly moving away, jerking/running away, to getting slightly-to-full-blown panic attacks. Bees in cars with me is by far the worst. I've freaked out so badly I started crying. It's just something I can't help - like the reaction is conditioned. I have other fears, of course, but my overactive imagination is the blame of most of them. For someone who believes that monsters could be real, a strange noise in the night when everything is pitch black doesn't do my mind a favor. The same goes for when I'm outside at night. Noises in the dark spook me. They get my imagination going big time. Even distant coyote howling makes my heart race... understandable, though, since my childhood nightmares were usually filled with wolves. Which is amusing since I LOVE all things canine But enough of my rambling. Who else has silly phobias and fears to share?
