Phobia Runs In The Family

I think I've written before about my odd phobias. Balloons - the rubber ones - China, Oprah Winfrey, trees growing out of water... There are a few. My mother can't really talk about the vastness of the universe without at some point putting her hands over her ears and humming so as to drown out the taunting from her beloved daughters, Kid Sister and myself. We're truly a blessing in her life, I tell ya. 

Speaking of Kid Sister... she's afraid of escalators and split level homes. I know! It's absurd. You go to a multi-level mall or airport or store and get ready to take the stairs because that brat cannot make herself ride an escalator. We've only just discovered this split-level home phobia. The neighborhood Asher's school is in is full of 1980's split levels like this
And she cannot stand to be near them! Something about half in the ground, half out and creeping her out. It's hysterical! So, being the supportive big sister I am, every time I take Asher to school I snap a picture of one of them and send it to her phone. I truly am a blessing in her life. Hee hee hee.

My friend has a potato eye phobia, so I am sure to send her a pic of every one I find :).

Hey...we've all got them. But this one's more unfortunate than most. Taking the stairs is too much extra work. :o)

China, the country, or dishes? :)

I have a phobia of fish scales... Well just fish in general.

I love that you send your sister pics. That's so nice!

I take medication for my weirdness... I'll share some.
I love your family!

I do the same for my sister. She has a phobia of garden gnomes so I send pictures to her, and my mom and I hide one in places where she won't expect them.

Supportive older sisters unite?
