Do ya'll have any irrational fears? If not, don't worry... I have enough for all of you.
I think it I have a slight case of OCD and it manifests itself in my fears around heat/fire/burning my house down.
Let me explain....
Irrational Fear #1
I have a fear that I'm going to burn my house down by leaving my Chi hair straightener on. I have to tell myself, out loud, that I've turned it off... and also ask Guy at least 3x on the way out of the house if I turned it off. I think many girls have this fear.... but mine is bad.
Irrational Fear #2
Sigh... my toaster oven. Anytime I use it, I leave the door open for HOURS after using it. As if the thing is going to spontaneously combust after use. Guy trys to rationalize with me that if I don't do that with the actual oven (which I don't), then why would I do it with a toaster oven.
It's called 'irrational' for a reason people....
Irrational Fear #3
I'm convinced that I'm going to turn the dryer on and Gus is accidentally going to be in there. I haven't even told Guy this one....I just ritually check where Gus is before I dry anything. And if Guy is drying clothes without me being involved...I have to sneak in and stop the dryer, make sure Gus isn't in there, and sneak out.
I guess my secret is out.
So please.... tell me you have a irrational fear so I don't feel like such a trainwreck!
