Ridiculous fears.

Hallo meine Lieben,

I hope you are all having a wonderful time and you are all able to stay warm. It is so freezing cold over here, I can't even describe it. We went to a concert in Cleveland last night and I almost froze to death on my way from the car to the venue. Which was only a 2 minute walk but enough time to die. 

I am linking up with these ladies for some more Random Thursday.




The topic is...


Well, this is totally my topic because I have a pretty bad ridiculous fear. I am scared of water.  Not so much the water that comes out of the shower...I am even fine with the  water in my bath tub. But any amount of water bigger than that freaks me out. Really. I mean it.

Even a pool is too much for me when it is deep enough. I need to be able to stand on the ground and have my head over the water. Then I am fine. Anything else...pure horror. 
As you can imagine, beach vacations are probably not much fun with me. I never go swimming. Never. Not because I can't swim. I am just too scared. 
I don't have any bad experiences with water. Probably because I never go swimming. It is just a ridiculous fear.

Not that I really have a fear of clowns but I can't understand how parents can invite clowns to their kids' birthdays. They are totally creepy and I don't want to meet a clown at night.
Maybe I watched "It" too often when I was a child...maybe.

These are my ridiculous fears. What are yours?

  1. I have a big fear of the ocean. We are going to the beach this summer with all three kids and I have already had a nightmare about it but I don't want my kids to never get to experience the ocean because of my fear. Lol

    1. I totally understand! I am so scared of the ocean, I could never swim in it. But I think it is good when your kids get that experience so that they won't be scared of the ocean too!

  2. I'm the same way with water...I won't go in the lake or ocean because I have this weird fear of being sucked away to my death in the black depths, even if I'm only up to my ankles. I don't like to get much more than knee deep. I can swim fine, but I start panicking as soon as I get in the water. Weird how we all have such similar fears! Maybe they're not so ridiculous after all.

    1. I am so glad I am not the only one. Lakes are so scary! I can't stand it when I can't see the ground! I start to panic too, even in a swimming pool. It is really bad.

  4. I am super afraid of beetles and cockroaches.... I don't know what it is but I think it is the noise they make when they run across the floor. That is why I live in a place where we don't have any cockroaches! Katrin I know you wouldn't be happy with me if I was setting up traps for them! ~Stephanie

    1. Probably not. :) I would come over and catch all of them for you and then carry them outside. :)

  5. Glad you didn't freeze last night. We'd sure of missed you if you did :(

    As gorgeous as the beach can be, the ocean can be hella frightening. Dont know if it's because my mom used to tell us that if we went into the water where it reached passed our shins then the current would take us & suck us in. Yeah, scary stuff for a 7yr old.

    1. I have seen "The Impossible" and it was sooooo scary! I am fine when I am at the beach but as soon as I go into the water I am scared and start to panic!

  11. Water freaks me out too. Tsunami...that's all I have to say.

    It's weird because I only go on beach vacation and while I occasionally go in the ocean, I kinda get paranoid. What if a huge tidal wave hit and washed me away.

  12. I freaking hate clowns! I don't know who on Earth ever thought they conveyed "happiness", haha!

    I'm afraid of the ocean and huge ships and bridges give me big time vertigo, brrrrr! But probably my biggest fear is losing my loved ones, including Dimitri, of course.
