I used to be quite the tomboy when I was a little girl and I could be found climbing trees, jumping fences, digging for worms, splashing in mud, and exploring the woods on our property. No dirt or squirmy form of life ever freaked me out.....until I accidentally stepped on a worm that proceeded in getting stuck between my toes and ever since then not only do worms freak me out but a lot of other things do too.
Things that Freak me Out
Flour ~ Oh my goodness! I am getting goosebumps just thinking about flour. I beyond abhor flour. It began on the day that I got covered in it by accidentally tipping a bag of flour over myself. The very feeling of flour and the sound of it sweeping across a dry surface or smacking against someone's hands or apron makes me want to scream.
Chalk ~ My irrational hatred of chalk branched off of my hatred of flour, they have the same texture and the same level of scratchiness to them that makes me avoid touching chalk whenever possible. Let's just say that sidewalk art is never done by me.
Tennis shoes ~ Oh how they freak me out, I want to gag just thinking about their disgusting feel on my feet, and the way that they look! I have no idea when I started to hate tennis shoes but eventually I couldn't stand them anymore.
Crocs ~ Yep, to me they are the most disgusting shoes ever created in all history of foot wear. The very thought of having to put my feet into a pair of crocs, or even touching them makes my skin crawl.
Used straws ~ Ack! They are so disgusting! Seeing one lying innocently on the kitchen sink, crinkled up from being chewed on by a toddler.... I think I might barf.
Toenails ~ Even when they are firmly attached to someone's foot they still freak me.
Potatoes ~ Eeek! Their dry and crusty skin makes me shiver every time I touch them, even seeing someone else touch them makes me shiver.
Mud ~ I hate mud because it is squishy and squelchy and slimy. Jumping in muddy puddles is not something that sounds like fun. I think that the reason I hate mud so much is because when I was a little girl some bully of a boy asked me to stand close to him while he showed me a trick and he jumped right into a huge puddle of mud purposely showering my Sunday dress with globs of goopy brown mud.
Beards ~ I don't know what it is about beards but they freak me very badly. Maybe because they grow out of bony chins is why, but I'm not sure.
Man Buns ~ Goodness, I don't even know where to start when it comes to man buns. They are weird, look greasy, are gnarly, and are simply a trend that I wish never happened.
Slugs and snails ~ Pretty much anything that secretes mucous is considered freaky, disturbing, and disgusting to me.
And now that you know a lot more strange things about me I will end my post. The End.
