Day 3 of the Blog a Day in May Challenge
Things that give me the hebe-gebes, creepy- crawlies, wig me out, or just make me downright uncomfortable:
Let me count the ways:
Plenty of things give me anxiety, as I mentioned
yesterday. There are the obvious ones, strangers, people staring, awkward
silences, being in front of an audience…
I could go on for days, so here are the ones that may just be
my own weirdness:
Nose whistling; sometimes happens a tiny bit
when I have a cold, but no matter what, I just can’t get it to stop!
Mysterious gooey substances on park benches or
When I can’t think of anything to say, I mean nothing
at all, so I stand there looking dumb
Kids scratching themselves in public
Kids I don’t know asking me to play with them at
Kids asking questions I don’t know if their parents
want me answering honestly (I watch a lot of kids, so this list could also go
on for days. I’ll move on)
Yo Gabba Gabba. There is so much wrong with that
show, I don’t know where to start. I don’t allow my kids to watch things that
make me cringe.
Men with tight shorts (whoever invented biker
shorts should be put away).
Overly happy people! Such as with wide creepy
smiling eyes and fake smiles, where they show all their teeth and look like
they really want to eat you! They may talk in a high pitched tone that makes me
Creepy old men ogling
talk, from a grown person to another grown person!
Hubby getting touchy feely in public. Sorry, but
I don’t like to see other people groping (there’s another for the list), so
save it till we’re alone!
Hubby talking really loud so everyone looks at
us! I’ve perfected being invisible, and he is the opposite!
Hubby telling his life story to the checker at
the store when a line of people are glaring at us, and the checker is obviously
just being nice and not genuinely interested. (I love him, but he loves to talk
and can be so oblivious!)
And last, but not least, psychotic, creepy
children in movies! They freak me out more than anything!!
I’m sure there are many more. And probably some stranger
ones, but that’s all I can think of at the moment.
What makes you shudder?
