It's all I can do to make it to the next party...

Fraidy Cat

There is some silly rumor going around that I am… brave. Courageous. Some trash like that. I’m here to put these things to rest. Friends, I am a Fraidy Cat, there are no two ways about it. You can call it neurotic, phobic, whatever you like. I’m adding new ones every day. Here’s the latest list:

flying

heights

asking for help at a store

strangers

spiders

answering the door

being in the first lane at the drive up teller

horses

bridges

confined spaces

talking on the phone

needles

loud noises

being seen eating in the car

looking weird in general

salmonella

leaving things plugged in

when someone cranks the car before I’m in it

choking

embolisms

breathing in the same room where someone is coughing/sneezing

 

I’ll think of more. Yes, I have a small supply of little white pills. But those are only for flying. I cut out caffeine and I exercise regularly. In general, I try to forge ahead and do things I’m afraid of. But potentially breathing someone’s cough, no-can-do.
