What are you afraid of? I'm not talking about the normal things like losing your children and all that. I mean the funky other stuff. The ones your friends make fun of you for.
Me? I have a thing about june bugs. Oh man, I could barely even type those words. *shiver* They are so ugly and nasty and just NOT natural! Oh and the way they feel when they get on you? Those sticky little feet? *shivers violently*
It probably doesn't help that I was raised in a family that was vicious. You could not show any weakness or it would be exploited. I let my guard down and they found out about my june bug aversion. The result? A VERY vivid memory of my sister and grandfather each picking one up and chasing me through the house with it. And when I locked myself in the bathroom? Yeah, they shoved them in under the door crack. Good times! *twitches*
Don't even get me started on tree roaches. Especially the time when I was laying in bed at night and saw one on the ceiling over my bed, and when I blinked, it was gone. (I'll leave to your imagination where it was)
I also have weird quirks. Well heck, everybody does.
-I cannot stand the sound, or even the thought, of silverware scraping against teeth. It's like fingernails on a chalkboard to me. Thinking of it now as I type, my jaw is clenched. It's that bad.
-When I wash my hair, after I lather, I rinse my hands before I start rinsing my hair. Even though my hands will get soapy again. I have no idea why, but I have to. I have even tried to not do it, and it just felt wrong. Like my hair wasn't clean or something.
-I like Pepsi and Diet Coke. I can't stand Coke or Diet Pepsi.
-I am claustrophobic. To the point of where I can't even put a blanket over my head in bed. Once I got twisted up in my sheets and about had a panic attack.
-I like cottage cheese. To me this isn't very weird, but I have met more people that hate it than not.
-I don't like chocolate. I know this makes me a real freak. I do like it in some forms, like hot chocolate or chocolate cake. I have been known to eat a fudgesicle on occasion. But a candy bar? Blech! While we're at it, I'll go ahead and admit I don't like frosting, caramel, butterscotch, the cream in oreos, or whipped cream. Actually I think it's sugar itself that I'm not too hip on. I like sweet stuff, but just not very strong.
-I cannot park in spaces where I have to turn to the right. Well, I can, but it's not a pretty sight.
Ok, well it's late, so that will have to end the "random facts about Meghann" section of our program for this evening.
