Earlier todayÂ Shea replied to my delicious tweet about the hearts of palm salad I was eating that I got from Whole Foods.
Hereâ€™s how the conversation went:
@ItsBrookeRyan your lunch looks yummy
@sheaDtheBrick it was delicious!!!!!
I donâ€™t know why but buffets FREAK ME OUT! Pretty much all of them (especially Chinese & Ruby Tuesdayâ€™s Salad Bar) give me the creeps. Iâ€™ll (hesitantly) dabble in Wedding Style Buffets, the Whole Foods Salad bar is fine (I think itâ€™s because you arenâ€™t eating it and going back for more), and I really donâ€™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 Jeebiesâ€¦and hereâ€™s a list of things I came up with.
- The Gunk/Spit In The Corner Of Someoneâ€™s Mouth- You know when youâ€™re talking to someone and they have the spit stuck in the place where their lips connectâ€¦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 Iâ€™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 Knucklesâ€¦need I say more?
What are some of the things that make you squirm?
