What is your most " irrational" fear?

I'm terrified of squirrels and I'll cross street in tears of fear I cross one's path... cos I have reasons so not irrational at all ... Now this question makes no sence... I'm scared :/

    Confrontation. I tend to run away from it.

    My aunt had the same fears. She said squirrels were rats with tails. My dog loved squirrels. He'd chase them all day long - never caught one. They'd chirp at him from high in the tree. I swear they were laughing at him.

    My biggie has always been acrophobia -- the fear of heights. I've battled it all my adult life and can now put it in my back pocket, but I still tighten up when I'm too close to the edge of a high drop.

    Jaimie, you may not know this, but ordinary barnyard chickens used to be able to fly with the eagles. Then, along came mass production of eggs and a whole generation were bred from a rooster that had acrophobia. They've been afraid to fly ever since.

    I used to write Tall Tales columns for a couple of suburban newspapers. Lots of fun. Especially when people thought they had actually happened. (Like the time I discovered oil in Sydney's western suburbs.)

    Mine is the incorrect use of punctuation.  I mean, it's such a slippery slope because look at how it starts; one day we're simply tagging tildes at the bottom of our posts, the next thing you know, people are putting spaces after opening quotation marks, and then randomly placing ellipses throughout sentences.  It's pure anarchy, madness, a moral lapse.   I can't take too much more of this, come on, for cryin' out lout, it's got to stop somewhere!
