Well, last summer, my husband found a black widow outside our front door. Instead of killing her, he decided to put her in the bottle and make me babysit her. :shock: It was the hardest thing to do, but for three days, I dealt with having a black widow in our house. At night, I made it sleep outside because I didn't want it magically unscrewing the lid off and getting in the house. I ended up naming her Charlotte, so she wouldn't seem as scary. But...I'm still afraid of spiders and I'll scream if I see one! (Just ask Ouisa!)

I remember the Kevlar!

I'm impressed he caught the thing, actually. I don't like spiders, but I wouldn't go as far to say I have a phobia of them - sure I squirm, but I'm... er... okay... I guess.

But even babysitting a black widow would scare the crap out of me. I'm impressed you made it through! You're my hero now. Next time I start having a panic attack around a boy, I'll think "Jenni did it with the spider, I can do it with the boy." (And no, we're not in the gutter. :p)

Arachnophobia - Spiders...really bad! Ew....
Dentophobia - Fear of dentists, but I'm kind of working on that one
And then I'm afraid of pretty much every illness and disease out there - I'm a bit of a hypochondriac, actually ;-)

OK, I didn't know this was actually a phobia, but, I have:

Selachophobia- Fear of sharks.

It's totally irrational, because when am I going to come into contact with a shark? It's not like I'm going to go swimming wih them. But even when one is shown on TV, I freak. Weird, right?

And hopefully no one has this one, but I find this funny:

Genuphobia- Fear of knees.
