    I don't like public speaking either because I'm afraid they'll all chase me with baseball bats afterwards.

    I don't like it because I feel like an idiot standing up there and I'm afraid I'll forget something important. I also don't like hearing my voice on video afterwards if we have to watch it.

    If you think that was funny, it wasn't.

    Ugh I hate that too. I also hate speaking on a microphone. Makes me feel as if I'm not really there.

    I've got arachnophobia (just spiders though, I can handle scorpions with no problem). I've also got a phobia of water (which gets annoying when people assume I just need to learn how to swim, I already know how, I just won't do it). On top of that, I have PTSD, and in my case, one way it manifests itself is as a mild form of anthropophobia (pathological fear of humans). One of my professors turned this into the joke that I must be the worlds first anthropophobic anthropologist.

    Nice animatronic spider. I'd probably have arachnophobia if they actually got that big.

    I really don't care for super-hyper active dogs that jump up at you. I don't have the best balance so I have to worry about falling. Cats are so much better. The purring can get annoying but the hacking up a hairball is worse.

    Ever have a cat hack one up on your bed in the middle of the night? I'm a total cat person, but not at that moment!

    I don't like my cats sleeping with me. One of my cats used to do that years ago but the purring kept me awake and would jump on me. If I was snoozing on a couch or chair and they were beside me just resting or sleeping, that would be okay

    I love it when my cat sleeps with me. I like listening to her purr, and right now it's cold, so she's all nice and warm and snuggly.

    What I DON'T like is when one of my cats sleeps with me and lays at the bottom of my bed, and then grabs at my feet if I move them under the blanket.

    Ha ha lol. My cat liked to get near my ear and purr really really loud. That sounds really nice. Ha ha that stinks. If I wave something in front of my cats that stare at it and then try to catch it
