What’s Something That Freaks You Out for an Unknown Reason?
Sometimes the things that freak us out are unexplainable!
I'm not sure why it started, and I'm not sure if it will ever end, but I am SUPER grossed out by feet. I was at Jiu Jitsu earlier this week, and the move we were practicing required me to grab my opponent's feet in order to escape. It took so much courage for me to touch her feet, even though they were clean and freshly polished. I can't even IMAGINE how I would've reacted if it had been crusty man feet!
But, feet aren't the only thing that really creep me out. Ever since I was a kid, I've been freaked out by potato eyes. You know, when potatoes start sprouting those little buds on them? It disgusts me in a way I can't explain. I regret telling my mom this, because once she found out, she began chasing me around the house with them just for fun. That certainly didn't help my aversion to them, and it's probably why I hardly ever keep potatoes in my house now.
This week, we asked listeners to share the things that freak them out for no good reason. We had a TON of Iowans chime in with everything from animals and bugs to foods and body parts (no, I was not the only person to say feet!). Here are some the weirdest, funniest comments from Facebook:
