Whats Your Phobia
Hello and welcome to “What’s Your Phobia”. Did I sound like a game show announcer? I used my best Rich Field voice ( the price is right game show announcer). That’s right my sweet bloggy friends today I am broadcasting to the world that I have a few phobias. I think we all do…I hope you are nodding your heads yes right now or this post is going to make me look like a complete loon. I’m sharing a pleasant photo here just in case 🙂
I have a Arkoudaphobia-fear of Bears,
Ophidiophobia- fear of Snakes,
Acrophobia- a fear of high places,
Claustrophobia- a fear of confined spaces (I can still ride in an elevator, enter a closet etc. I just can’t stay there for very long)
and last but far from least,
Musophobia- fear of rodents ( mice and rats in particular). These phobias do not dictate my life but they do hinder me at times.
Why am I starting a rousing game of Whats Your Phobia…We have a mouse! For those of you who follow me on facebook you may remember we had Micky and Minnie running a muck just a few months ago. We had hoped word got out amongst the rodent community that they weren’t welcome ( once you enter you will not return). It seems one of them didn’t heed the warning, or he just boldly goes where most rodents fear to tread.
He, mouse with no name, made his way into our pantry and set himself up for a nice gourmet meal and left some of his remains behind. We are still trying to determine how they keep getting in.Two days of disinfecting, wiping, etc. have me in a spin. Hubby put door sweeps on the garage and basement doors just in case that is how they are getting in and I have put the majority of our pantry into hermetically sealed containers.
I tried to determine through some research if my fears are all irrational and how many fears ( phobias) does an average person have, only to find no definitive answers. I did discover that a lot of people ask the question ” do I have to many phobias” or “what is the average number of phobias”.
Okay my friends, Game On ! Feel free to list your phobia/phobias in the comment section. 🙂
