This is a question Phobias

What gives you the heebie-jeebies?

It's a bit strong to call this a phobia, but for me it's the thought of biting into a dry flannel. I've no idea why I'd ever want to or even get the opportunity to do so, seeing as I don't own one, but it makes my teeth hurt to think about it. *ewww*

Tell us what innocent things make you go pale, wobbly and send shivers down your spine.

Crumbs, especially soggy crumbs on a wet surface, are retch-worthy. I can't bear the sound of toast crumbs on a plate, but the absolute worst is food crumbs down the backs of chairs. I cannot put my hand down the back of a chair in case there are crumbs, and public transpost is a nightmare. If I've been sitting on the Tube, I have to take my trousers off & put them in the wash as soon as I get home. Because there might be crumbs stuck to me.

And yet, strangely, food that comes in breadcrumbs (chicken nuggets, scampi) does not bother me at all.

(Until the crumbs fall onto the plate. Then they're evil again)

...is like that too, our telly remote slipped down the back of the sofa and she had to wait for me to come home before she could watch telly.
