Things That Give Me The “Heeby Jeebies”

Earlier today Shea replied to my delicious tweet about the hearts of palm salad I was eating that I got from Whole Foods.

Here’s how the conversation went:

@sheaDtheBrickShea Donahue

@ItsBrookeRyan

@sheaDtheBrick ughhhh#ijustthrewuptheheartofpalmsaladinmymouth 🙂

I don’t know why but buffets FREAK ME OUT! Pretty much all of them (especially Chinese & Ruby Tuesday’s Salad Bar) give me the creeps. I’ll (hesitantly) dabble in Wedding Style Buffets, the Whole Foods Salad bar is fine (I think it’s because you aren’t eating it and going back for more), and I really don’t have a problem with Breakfast Buffets, but all others NO GO!

I started thinking about things that give me (what my mom liked to call) the Heeby Jeebies…and here’s a list of things I came up with.

  • The Gunk/Spit In The Corner Of Someone’s Mouth- You know when you’re talking to someone and they have the spit stuck in the place where their lips connect…UGHHHHHH GROSS!!!!! Wipe it out, get rid of it, drink some water, do something.
  • People Standing Over My Shoulder- I get anxiety like no other if I’m looking at something on a computer and someone (who is not on the level of being that close to me) comes in behind my shoulder to see what it is. Prom pose is fine, a hug from behind is ok, leaning on my shoulder I can deal with, but lingering in my personal bubble makes me want to GTFO.
  • The Sound Of People Cracking Their Knuckles…need I say more?

What are some of the things that make you squirm?
