Welcome once again to Fandango’s Provocative Question. Each week I will pose what I think is a provocative question for your consideration.
By provocative, I don’t mean a question that will cause annoyance or anger. Nor do I mean a question intended to arouse sexual desire or interest.
What I do mean is a question that is likely to get you to think, to be creative, and to provoke a response. Hopefully a positive response.
My provocative question this week was suggested to me by Jim Adams (A Unique Title for Me). In a comment on one of my posts he wrote, “I was thinking that you could do a Provocative Question asking people about their phobias.” And I thought, why the hell not?
It’s possible — and even likely — that Melanie (Sparks From a Combustible Mind) may have asked this question in one of her Share Your World challenge posts. But it’s a good question, so I’ll pose it anyway.
But first I want to define “phobia.”
It’s an extreme or irrational fear of or aversion to something. A phobia is not just being afraid or fearful of something. It’s extreme and/or irrational. So, that said, my provocative question this week is…
Do you have any phobias? If so, have you had these phobias all your life or have the developed or evolved as you’ve aged?
If you choose to participate, write a post with your response to the question. Once you are done, tag your post with #FPQ and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Or you can simply include a link to your post in the comments. But remember to check to confirm that your pingback or your link shows up in the comments.
