On that note, I thought I'd share a list of other ridiculous things that freak me the eff out.
Popsicle sticks. Yep, really. The feeling of the stick on my tongue and teeth...omigod (I feel like there's a "that's what she said" in there somewhere). I don't like to touch them, and I don't like to taste them.
The sound of eating carrots and other hard crunchy food. My students have baby carrots for snack a lot. I'm all for healthy snacks and chomping on vegetables, but hearing their tiny teeth gnaw off a piece of carrot sets my teeth on edge.
Public bathrooms. We've already established that I'm a germ-a-phobe. Germ-o-phobe? Never ever will I ever sit my tushy on a public toilet seat. I'll squat my hiney over the seat as a last resort...but I'd rather cross my legs and hold it til I get home, thanks.
Phone calls from unknown numbers. Maybe this is just from watching too many horror movies or Pretty Little Liars. If I don't recognize a phone number, I don't answer it. Someone is obviously hunting me down.
Belly buttons. I just think they are weird, ok?
Now that I've shared some of my crazy with you, tell me what weird things bother you. Let me know I'm not alone in this.
