I have Hastenburaphobia.
I actually didn't know it had a name until about a year ago. Any guesses what it could be? :)
It's a fear of grass.
Yes. It's true. That soft, green carpet of grass in your backyard that's perfect to lay down and take a nap on?
I don't like it. Sure I like the looks of it, but the feel? Gross!!
My husband thought I was kidding when I told him I didn't like it. He soon found out that I was dead serious.
Things I won't do if it pertains to grass:
*I won't ever walk on it with bare feet. I'd freak out. My brother-in-law thought it would be funny to carry me out in the middle of the lawn, take my flip-flops off and leave me there. Not funny. I don't think I've ran so fast in my whole life! Ha ha.
*I won't sit on it.
*I'll sit on it with a blanket, but I won't like it.
*I'll never ever lay on it.
*If there are sprinklers involved, I'll wear flip-flops.
*If food or something falls on the grass, I won't eat it.
*If my kids are crying in the middle of the lawn and I don't have shoes on, I'll let them cry. (I'll conquer my fear for a few seconds if they're hurt or something. I'm not that crazy. :)
I know. I have a problem. I've had it since I was a little girl, so it's nothing new to me. People always think I'm weird though when I tell them I don't like grass.
Do you guys have any phobias?
