Back up the Brinks Truck…

That’s one of my all time favorite phrases.

You got one?


A word a friend of mine will never utter and shudders at the sound of.

Snaps–they make me cringe.  The fact I got through infanthood without my children’s clothing flapping in the wind is a miracle.

Got any weird pseudo-phobias?

  1. To this day I can’t watch The Wizard of Oz. It freaked me out as a child and gives me the willies as an adult. It’s not just the flying monkeys. The Tin Man and the Scarecrow creep me out too. And the witch-lady, don’t get me started…

  2. I’m afraid of turtles. If I’m swimming in fresh water, the thought of them can make me temble uncontrollably. Favorite expression? When I’m frustrated/excited/nervous I tend to mutter f*ckin c*cksucker under my breath over and over.

  3. Hearing singers/songs I hate makes me feel physically ill. People think I’m exaggerating, but I’m not. The next time I hear Toni Braxton around them, perhaps I’ll throw up. Then they’ll understand.

  4. I had a similar reaction as Jamie to Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory – the original w/ Gene Wilder. Hello, what kind of LSD tripper made that one (and then decided it was great for kids)?

    I’m learning great new phrases from my friend, Rita. Case in point: Last year we learned we had dated the same guy (she many years ago, for a few months; me last winter, for 3 dates). Recently, we found out said guy went out with my neighbor! As Rita said, “He gets around faster than an hors d’oeuvre tray.” I love it!

  5. Susan, that’s hilarious. Does he have a job? Love the phrase, too.
    Dana, Mary Poppins, don’t like her, but interesting that you react that way…hence the inexplicable psuedo-phobia.
    Caryn, I agree with you totally, but never told anyone. Spandaue Ballet makes my skin crawl. And I absolutely can not listen to True. Never could.
