Last night making dinner I was shredding cheese and like always I caught my finger nail in it. I told my husband and he replied, "yeah I’m afraid of those things." I kind of played it off like that was totally normal but this morning while I was loading the dishwasher I found myself laughing pretty loudly at the absurdity of being afraid of a cheese grater. Now OBVIOUSLY I can’t talk because I’m afraid of pretty much everything (water glasses, grass etc), but that doesn’t mean I can’t laugh at his ass.
That got me thinking, wondering, what kind of strange odd things are other people afraid of? So, please share with me your odd, strange and laughable fears. I promise not to laugh.
(I "promise" that I didn’t just cross my fingers behind my back while I said I wouldn’t laugh.)
In other news I have made a breakthrough on the glass thing. I still can’t drink out of a regular glass, I still refuse to touch my lips to a restaurant glass (I am slowly learning to drink water from a glass at some restaurants) HOWEVER! I have discovered that at home I can drink out of mason jar cups. Yes I have found a glass I like. I have three right now. One with a handle, an old old old Jack in the Box mason jar glass I got at a garage sale, one from the apricot jam my husband’s uncle makes, and one that just appeared in my cupboard one day. So YAY for me right? I am kind of thinking of hitting up some second hand stores and just replacing all of my normal glasses with mason jars so I can feel sort of normal.
Ha, suddenly a fear of a cheese grater doesn’t seem quite as bad.
But still much much more funny.
(Also did you notice my use of the word absurd? I think I have read the Twilight series one too many times because Edward says that every three pages. I was highly annoyed he never said it once in the movie. Nor did they say I love you. Movie producers suck balls.)
