What things freak you out? Are there things on a “list” like I have? These aren’t things that truly terrify me to the point of not being able to cope, but things that I think about. Enjoy the weird.
1. If I’m pumping gas, I can almost guarantee that I’ll have thoughts about the place blowing up. Either because someone drives into one of the pumps (like I’ve seen on TV) or because someone is smoking a cigarette. Newsflash: cigarettes are on fire. Gasoline is explosive. Do the math.
2. I hate crossing big bridges. Strangely enough, little old rickety bridges don’t bother me; it’s crossing the Mississippi that I don’t like. That whole Minnesota bridge collapse didn’t help matters. I always picture the bridge collapsing and my car crashing into the water.
3. Permissive parenting. Scares the daylights out of me. Because those kids are someday going to be my kids’ classmates and coworkers.
