Don't worry OL - my irrational is clowns, the colour red, and teeth.
To the point that I would seriously consider not having children just so I'd not have to deal with wobbly teeth. The thought makes my stomach curdle! Any other body part be it oozing smelly or broken is just fine, I've no problems with things in eyes, dressing wounds on an mrsa infected foot, or having a drunk friend up chuck on me, but at the slightest suggestion of teeth I'm running for the hills!
No idea what I've got against the colour red. Its just not a nice colour! I have to bite my lip when people protest how S *has* to give me red roses because that's romance (I'd rather have a new oil filter for my car!)
I'm sure the clowns thing is because mother insisted that my brother and I would have a clown come to our joint party (we were a month & two years apart and he was the favourite so by joint it meant i could bring a friend) despite my not wanting it and my little brother only being interested in trains, food,and poking the cat, and her then insisting on inviting everyone from the primary school even those I showed my clear contempt for. He was so bad I was sent out of the room because I found him neither humorous nor any of his magic tricks anything other than a very poor trick. My commenting on his lack of hygiene might not have helped matters truth be told. I think I spent the rest of the party reading books in the garden which was my idea of heaven! (I was a very strange six year old).
Just had to peel my entire harvest of garlic as upon opening the special Aldi garlic storing container I found EVERYTHING covered in mould! Fortunately only the outer layers so they've all been peeled, chopped, and are now in jars full of white wine vinegar. Wont be seeing any vampires for a while that's for sure!! My poor eyes!
One neighbour has two paddling pools, the other has two trampolines. I'm hoping they'll realise the fun that could be had!!
