Free Write #5: Fear of What!?

Hey cupcakes! As some of you may know (especially if you are a blogger yourself!), I usually tend to pre-write my posts so that I don't need to stress about writing a post on a certain day and time. I was trying to figure out what to write this post about a few days ago and realized that I haven't done a free write in sooooo long (check out the last one from March here!). I let this random generator pick a topic and wrote for ten minutes..... Today's topic:

Write about a phobia.

Okay, so I literally laughed out loud when this was randomly generated. I really have two big phobias, and it is funny because the second one is really really weird (we will get to that in a second). First, I am afraid of heights (correct phobia name: acrophobia).

This phobia started in middle school when my gym class was tasked with climbing a big giant rope that stretched to the ceiling... I had killer upper body strength back then (I really wish I still did!), so I made it about 3/4 of the way up before I made the terrible decision to look down. It was terrifiying! I was like

and scurried back down and basically never climbed up any ropes again. I am fine with flying on planes and looking out from tall windows, but I can't deal with things like ferris wheels where I can literally plunge to my death.

Secondly, I am afraid of belly buttons (correct phobia name: omphalophobia).

I know I know it is really bizarre, but I HATE the thought that my belly button was once a passageway into my insides. I'm not like super afraid of belly buttons, so I won't like die or freak out if I see one, but I can't deal with touching my belly button because part of me is certain that my finger will end up in my stomach. It is uber weird, but I just had to share with this prompt! ;)

What are your phobias? Comment below and don't forget to follow The Chic Cupcake!
