Reactionary Tales

A to Z Fears

My friend James has tasked me with listing out my fears A to Z. Twenty six items that scare me from the top of my head to this post. It can be a thing or a place but not a person. For more information on the rules, see here. I don’t plan to tag anyone so if you would like to participate, I’m sure you would make James happy as I’m about to. 🙂

Okay, here we go:

A – Arachnids
B – Bees (I was stung in the neck once. Not cool)
C – Creatures, critters and crazies in the dark
D – Drowning
E – Extinction
F – Freezing
G – Godzilla
H – Haunted places
I – Invisible (as in people not really seeing me)
J – Jumping (as in bungee jumping)
K – Krakens
L – Liars in power
M – Murder (sorry I stole yours James)
N – No one (as in having no one and being alone)
O – Ocean
P – Pregnancy
Q – Quiet (I don’t like silence. I always want to fill it)
R – Running for my life from something
S – Swimming
T – Trying hard and failing
U – Uranus being cast out with Pluto
V – Venom of any variety
W – Worst (as in my worst nightmare)
X – X-factor (there’s always an x factor)
Y – Yellow jackets
Z – Zeus

I guess I cheated. Zeus is a person but he’s technically dead so that doesn’t count right?

      Yeah.. my husband wants to get pregnant and I’m scared I’m going to die on the table. I think it’s a rational fear!

    I’m so glad you did the challenge! And to see we have a bunch in common. We can forgive the Zeus answer… as you said, he’s not alive now… and he can’t complain about it!

    I won’t touch the pregnancy one… as I can understand the fear despite the blessing all at the same time. 🙂

    U was awesome! Good one.

    As for X-factor… is that as in ex- or as in the unknown! 😛 You don’t have to answer.

    Love the ocean, but I can’t swim, so I would avoid it too.

      I think the ocean is cool too but also, I can’t swim. Which is why swimming ocean and drowning made the list haha. It was fun to do. Thanks again for tagging me 🙂
