Lunchtime Poll

Lunchtime Poll 11/30

We’re going to the scary place today, readers.   Do you have any irrational fears?  What are they?  For me, it’s spiders, other bugs which are big enough to leave goo when they’re squashed, and touching sandpaper.

I have the opposite problem as paperispatient, I worry that a bridge or overpass will collapse on me when I’m UNDER them, say, stopped in traffic. We need to make sure we’re not in the same place, at the same time, on the same bridge or overpass.

Break-ins. Maybe that’s not such an irrational fear, since I’m alone quite a bit, in a house that doesn’t have a security system. We really need to get a dog.

Snakes, spiders, shark attacks, the usual…..I think the thing that terrifies me most is the idea of being buried alive or trapped underground in a small space.
