I should have realized beforehand that not everyone can process space relations as well as others. And since the font I used for the phobia names [on the planner] is pretty geometric, it didn’t read that well for some. In my defense, the font looked pretty good on the screen but yeahhh, it didn’t turn out well on print. I’m so sorry for the mistake but let’s have fun now while revisiting the silly list of ridiculous fears that you can also find on your Slate Planner:
Acerophobia – Fear of Sourness
Personally, I am not that big of a fan of sour foods (except sour cherry jelly beans) but how does one live without lemon bars or lemonade or calamansi juice?
Arachinobutyrophobia – Fear of Peanut Butter Sticking to the Roof of Your Mouth
I think this will only be a problem if the peanut butter doesn’t get unstuck! Haha.
Caligynephobia – Fear of Beautiful Women
Clinophobia – Fear of Beds
Well, if your bed looks like this then it IS pretty scary.
Dromophobia – Fear of Crossing the Road
Dear chicken, I feel you. Sometimes.
Geliophobia – Fear of Laughter
Genuphobia – Fear of Knees
So how is this possible? You just don’t look down?
Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia – Fear of Long Words
This phobia name is so ironic. Hahaha.
Hynophobia – Morbid Fear of Sleep and Falling Asleep
Kathisophobia – Fear of Sitting Down
How do you eat dinner? I guess standing up is an option. Play on the computer? Get out of bed? HOW DO YOU POOP?!
Lachanophobia – Fear of Vegetables
I guess if all vegetables looked like this, it will also scare me. Is that a veggie man?
Linonophobia – Fear of String
Lyssophobia – Morbid Fear of Laughter or Insanity
Paedophobia – Fear of Children
Ooh phobia combo alert! Laughter + Children! Hahaha.
Macrophobia – Fear of Long Waits
Panophobia – Fear of Everything
How does one live?
Peladophobia – Fear of Bald People
Pteronophbia – Fear of being tickled by Feathers
Xanthophobia – Fear of the Color Yellow or the Word Yellow
Phobatrivaphobia – Fear of Trivias about Phobias
I think this is the most ridiculous.
