Top 10 Personal Irrational Fears

I know they aren't scary.
  1. 1.
    Topping the list is WORMS
    I know they have an important job to do, but I'm always so happy when birds swoop in after I turn my compost heap
  2. 2.
    Slugs
    Like worms, but bigger, and with eyes. Once I was working in my garden and put my hand down and smashed a slug and I threw up instantly.
  3. 3.
    Mouths
    Because eww. Mostly due to saliva. I will break up with a person if they kiss with too much tongue or, god, saliva.
  4. 4.
    Emotions
    I think this is a projection of weakness, and have been working very hard to change that mentality.
  5. 5.
    Leaches
    Did you know they are still used in medical settings? I didn't, I thought we were past that, but no.
  6. 6.
    Telephone calls
    Have always been hard for me, and I'm so glad texting is a thing.
  7. 7.
    Escalators
    I am 100% convinced I will get sucked into one. I still use them, but I jump to exit.
  8. 8.
    Being wrong about god and going to Hell
    This is usually just a concern when I'm too high to function. Thanks Methodist/Catholic upbringing.
  9. 9.
    Getting a limb ripped off on some jacked up fair ride
    But I still ride them, just super aware of my limbs.
  10. 10.
    Failure
    Any type. I get really frustrated if I'm not instantly good at something, or if I don't meet my own arbitrary level of success.
