Listen to Neil and Leah’s chat about their fears from this mornings show.
I have the fear of spiders and snakes like most people but I also have a weird one as well. Are you ready for this? I hate touching wooden spoons and popsicle sticks. It was so bad growing up that I would wrap the package that the popsicle came in around the bottom of the popsicle stick. I still do this actually to this day! I hate touching wooden cooking spoons as well, I refuse to use them. So of course I have metal ones instead. Just the thought of touching either of those right now gives me goosebumps!
Everyone’s got their breaking point, with me it’s Spiders
Ever since i was a kid I have been terrified of spiders. There are three species that were particularly big and nasty where I grew up. The biggest was the dock spider. Big and black and a great swimmer dock spiders would live on floating docks at the cottage (cabin) we would go to every year.
A black and yellow spider that hung around tomato plants was also frightening as we would often lose a soccer ball in the plants and have to go in and get it.
