    I am very afraid of birds. Any birds pretty much. If I'm in a pet store and there are big parrots, I get sweaty and my heart starts beating really fast. I never knew why I was so afraid of birds, but then my mom told me that when I was little, if I left the yard, a big bird was going to pick me up and take me to her nest and feed me to her babies. Now I get it..

    Another one is police. I freak out so bad whenever there is a cop nearby, no matter what. It turns out that when I was little, my dad said this to me, "You had better be good, there's a cop over there, and he's shooting a baby"!!! I can't even believe this! I guess being a Native American he was always really weary of (White) cops around the town, and I guess he wanted me to be too, or he thought it was funny. Either way, I'm afraid of cops and birds.

    I don't think I'm phobic of anything, but a few things in particular do scare me.

    Dinosaurs.
    The thought of dying alone, and never having been loved.
    Sharks and other sea life.
    Outerspace.

    Trish, you are a joy to know.

    Sunnie, what is it about dinosaurs that scare you? They're extinct. And what about outer space?
