How much like Monk are you?

A lot. And here's why. Partial list of Monk's phobia's and fear from this wiki:

Needles - I hate needles. A lot.
Death - I think we're all afraid of death.
Snakes - The only place I like them is under the mower deck.
Enclosed spaces/Caves - I need room to breath. Too much confinement and I get edgy.
Spiders - I'm no fan of them and can kill them without too much cringing. It's the big ones and the fast ones I don't like.
Public speaking - I'm much better at this than I once was, but it's still not a favorite thing of mine.
Chicken - Only if I eat it.
Frogs - Not afraid of them, just don't expect me to touch one.
Drowning - Even though I used to be a lifeguard, this is my most feared way of dying.
Food on my plate touching - This used to be a big issue when I was younger, but I've gotten much better. I even eat my food out of order now.
Sidewalk cracks - I actually avoid these when I can, but don't obsess about it.

And on a side note, if you watch me walk anywhere, you'll see me touch things as I walk around. Corners. Tags. Things that jut out. Kind of like Monk does with car antennae. And parking meters.

This could just as easily be titled "How much like Mom are you?"


Love, Mom

Wow, we thought we had issues! :) Of course don't get us started on snakes, spiders, scorpions, and other big bugs.
