I could not be more excited about the season premier of Monk tomorrow. It is my favorite show.
I love his weirdness. He makes me feel all kinds of normal.
The Monk website says he currently has 38 phobias. There is also a list of every phobia known to man. I'm thinking it may be useful.
For example, I am absolutely certain that I have these:
Coulrophobia, this one most of all
There are many more that I could list, but I'll spare you.
You need to check them out, though. It is incredibly entertaining.
The Princess has a phobia that wasn't listed. She has a fear of wipes.
Like, the wet wipes.
I'm not certain what happened, but I am thinking that a grandparent may have inadvertently cleaned her baby face with one. The smell of a wipe sends her over the edge.
And forget her touching one.
In the third grade, her teacher asked the students to grab a wet wipe and clean their desks at the end of each day.
She completely freaked.
I had to have a conference to discuss her irrational, yet real, fear of the wet wipe.
She got the job of cleaning the dry erase board.
When she was little, I would sometimes show her the wipe container for fun.
Immediate screams of panic.
I know. It was mean.
Go read the list and tell me one of your phobias.
It will make me feel much better about myself.
