We all have them. Sometimes we don't think about them until we're presented with a situation. Sometimes we hide what they are because we feel so silly. Jen and I shared ours a long time ago and found ourselves so amusing that we thought you'd like to know as well. What's a little ridicule among friends?

Mine came up as we were discussing my fear of a certain ride at Walt Disney World. Oh I ride it, but that doesn't stop me from screaming my head off and closing my eyes tightly at the end as I indiscriminately grip and duck my head into whoever is next to me. (Usually Hub thank God) Can you guess what it is? They're huge, scary and, well, extinct. Yup, you're right. I'm terrified a dinosaur is going to eat me.

Now I'm not terrified in an every day kind of way. It's just that I was fascinated by dinosaurs growing up. I read every book I could get my hands on. I watched every special that aired (Though there weren't many. We didn't have cable.) I talked about them with others. Geeky much? And I did have the occasional nightmare about what would happen if they came back. Then Jurassic Park came along. I loved that movie and that book. I watched and read them multiple times. Theme parks decided to feature dinosaur rides. I had lots more irrational nightmares about trying to escape dinosaurs in a world not equipped for them. And now when I ride those rides I scream my fool head off and somehow believe that the large chunk of rubber and machinery is really going to eat me.

Now that I've shared, won't you? Post or comment via my blog or Jen's. Just let me know so I can read!
