1) Spinal taps.
3) Swimming in an open body of water and not knowing what is underneath you. I'm convinced that every lake has a Loch Ness monster. 4) Along the same lines- saltwater crocodiles. At least 10 years ago I saw some video footage of crocodiles swimming in the ocean by Australia. It still haunts me. 5) And continuing with this theme- great white sharks. Holy crap! I know this picture is fake and I knew it was fake the first time I got it in an email. I still cried a little bit when I saw it though. 6) Waking up from an extended coma to find that Ginger is dead, Spencer's in college, Michael's remarried (thanks a lot) and the last thing I remember is 2009. I just want my life back!
7) Tracheotomy/Tracheostomy. The only time I ever had to excuse myself during a therapy session while I was doing my hospital internship in graduate school was with a trach patient. I think I spent the whole class on voice disorders with my hands covering my throat.
8) Waking up and seeing someone (alien, burglar, etc) standing at the end of the bed. I know that someday Spencer will be old enough to get out of bed on his own and come into our room during the middle of the night. I hope I don't hurt him when he does so.
9) Snakes. Big, little, medium, poisonous, not poisonous, wild, in a cage, whatever- they're all gross. But big snakes are really, really, really gross. 10) Taking the elevator in a tall building. I have no problem being in a tall building once I'm on an actual floor, but the elevator itself is freaky. I prefer elevators in buildings that are 4 floors or less. There. I guess you're armed with a lot of ways to freak me out now. Please don't.
