    Bears. I’ve been afraid of bears since I was a kid. I had a scary, giant stuffed panda that was bigger than I was. Very scary. My dad used to sing me the song about ‘the bear came over the mountain to see what he could see.’ Innocuous, yes? Not to me. I was sure that bear was going to come over the mountain and get me. I’ve been scared of bears all my life.

    I blogged about my irrational fear here:


    It is still my most popular post!

    My most irrational fear? I’m not sure it’s irrational, but here it is. When the apocalypse comes (take your pick in what form) I’m afraid I will be too old and feeble to fight.

      Oh, that is sad and I’m afraid of the same thing. I either want to be ground zero and have it over with quickly OR create my own new world where I am queen!!!

        Yes, the Teddy bears can stay on the shelf.

    I thought of another irrational fear as I was driving home the other day. Bicyclists sharing the road terrify me. I have this awful vision that one of them is going to hit a bump or a stone or something and fall over right in front of me. I’m afraid I won’t be able to stop and that I will run over one of them. I try to move over into another lane if possible, or give them maximum room if not. I wish the city would put more room for the bike lane.
