Fibbing Friday — Phobias

Di (aka Pensitivity101) and Melanie (Sparks From a Combustible Mind) alternate as hosts for Fibbing Friday, a silly little exercise where we are to write a post with our answers to the ten questions below. But as the title suggests, truth is not an option. The idea is to fib a little, a lot, tell whoppers, be inventive, silly, or even outrageous, in our responses. Di continues to fly solo, as Melanie is taking an indefinite hiatus from blogging due to ill health. Anyway, here are some phobias Di would like us to define.

  • Ablutophobia — a fear of the color blue
  • Androphobia — a fear of robots
  • Ataxophobia — a fear of having the IRS audit your tax return
  • Autophobia — a fear of getting crushed by automatic doors
  • Bathmophobia — a fear of drowning in the bathtub
  • Chromophobia — a fear of using Google’s Chrome browser
  • Ephebiphobia — a fear of the letter F
  • Genuphobia — a fear of genuflecting
  • Heliophobia — a fear of dying in a helicopter crash
  • Nomophobia — a fear of insulting the host at a dinner party by saying “No more” when offered more food.
  • Osmophobia — a fear of being absorbed by another substance through osmosis
  • Podophobia — a fear of pea pods
  • Trypophobia — a fear of tripping and falling
  • Wiccaphobia — a fear of Wiccans and witches
  • Zuigerphobia — a fear of zebras and other animals with stripes

    Flanophobia – fear of the colour ‘flan’, a rare shade of the tan. Found only in Florida………

    Hence a fear experienced only by Floridians………

    Sometimes, a little bit of silliness is good! I especially loved “Ataxophobia” (I’m an accountant, what’s not to love?) and “Nomophobia”! Thanks for the smiles, Fandango!
