i don't have many irrational fears. i feel like generally speaking i'm a pretty even keeled person.
snakes - whatevs.
spiders - so what?
mice - i couldn't ever hurt fievel!
but what does scare the bejesus out of me are things that fly.
birds? i'm petrified of them, they are the rats of the sky and i'm in constant fear of them dive bombing my head.
i even wrote a whole post about birds while i was simultaneously trapped in my apartment because a renegade sparrow had taken over my hallway.
but this post isn't about my fear of birds.
this post is about my fear of an appliance.
the ceiling fan to be exact.
every time i see a ceiling fan spinning ultra fast with the pully cord tassels whipping around, all i can imagine is the fan blades flying off and decapitating someone.
decapitation is cool..... but only in zombie movies.
another scenario that goes through my head is that if the blades don't fly off and decapitate someone i'm petrified that when i'm walking under the fan it's going to fall from the ceiling onto my head.
i told you guys it was an irrational fear - the blades just move so fast and the fan shakes so much - i can't but think it's going to fall!!!
don't judge me and my anti-ceiling fan self.
they are tacky anyways - i'm pro air conditioning all the way. ceiling fans are for suckers, yo.
so what's your most irrational fear?
sidenote: i just spent the last hour watching youtube videos involving ceiling fans - the following two are my favorites:
this one cause i think it truly was an accident.
and this one cause the kids face is priceless, plus he dazed and confused movie poster in the background makes me happy.
