I only have one phobia
, and that's for mushroom
s. I'm getting better, really I am, but for most of my life I've been unable to be in a room with a naked mushroom or to even contemplate the mere thought of eating one.
The worst thing about mushrooms is that they have spores
. What if I breath them in?? Will little mushrooms sprout inside me and fill up my insides and breed and smother me with mushrooms?? Of course not
, but sometimes I do think that... one of these strange thoughts
that springs into your head like paranoia
I'm getting better now though. I had a cup of cream of mushroom soup
for my lunch, and I touched a whole raw mushroom at the weekend.
Now if I could only wash those spores off
