I put fear of money - because then how would I go shopping with my daughter?
She and I actually had an argument tonight over a word - "Hydrophobia". She kept telling me it was when dogs would foam at the mouth. And I said, no it would be fear of water. But she was so insistent, so I looked it up to see if maybe she had misread her word.
Turns out "Hydrophobia" is an older term for rabies, because swallowing would be so painful for people, they would refuse to drink water - making people think they had a fear of water.
So I had to apologize to my 11 yr old and tell her she was right.
These are all awful! I hate the phobia I have (spiders) but eventhough there are spiders everywhere this does not stop me from living my life (thankfully i do not live where giant spiders live - some do grow big and even dare i say huge but not gigantic) like the phobias listed and others like it!
