2) Bike riding: Because when I was 8, I fell off my bike and scraped one side off my face and because cyclists creep me out.
3) Cancer: Because everyone seem to bloody get it.
Lisette - An outbreak of Zombie virus (what? That's legitimate.) - Because I watch way too many zombie movies and also I have a sick fascination with medical stuff like the plague and other awful pandemics.
School shootings. Because I have read too many books on school shootings - the worse one being 19 minutes by Jodi Picoult. I was pregnant with my first son when I was reading it and it reduced me to a puddle of tears. So much so that my lover-man hid it from me. Also, my oldest boy is going to school soon, that makes it even more terrifying. Thank God we live in New Zealand though and guns don't grow on trees here.
Getting eaten by a shark. I'm not sure why I became scared of sharks. I never used to be. When I was a kid, I was beach mad. When I was in my early 20s I loved surfing. Somewhere along the way, I started to freak out about sharks though. Great whites in particular. Perhaps it is the fact that they are fast and large and stealthy and maybe their multiple rows of razor sharp teeth have a touch to do with it too. Also I have kids, so I am really not allowed to die right now. Maybe that's it.
