    I have. Against flying insects.

    Flies I can handle, but everything else... like bees, wasps... even butterflies are a horror for me. It's worse inside than outside the house. But when they show up in the house, I break nearly every record by running away and jump over things. That's mostly very entertaining...

    Much to the amusement of all the kids I know I

    have been Globophobic since I was really young. Apparently it's not such a weird phobia as google tells me it's in the top ten of all phobias -but it can still ruin a bloody good party.

    I am afraid of cigarettes.

    I've always been afraid of them since I was little. I sit, stand, look, or even touch one. It just freaks me out to the point I have to go home and take a hot shower.

    Ninjas. They give me nightmares.

    So does Martin Short. I had a nightmare he was a serial killer and a rapist. I saw him on some crime drama later where his character was a serial killing rapist. That didn't help matters much.

    I am extremely terrified of electrical outlets!

    Like I cannot sleep until everything plugged into the wall is unplugged. I think this is because I heard a story about a boy who got shocked when he stuck something in an outlet and died. Like wow way to screw with my life, stupid curious kids -.-

    Not really a "phobia"

    but I'm scared that I'll sit in front of a large group of obnoxious teenagers in the movie theater, and they'll put popcorn in my hair, or in the hood of my jacket.
