Your personal Kryptonite

A friend told me she HATES the sound of tissue paper being torn.
It almost makes her cry.
I thought that was absurd, but I realize that everyone has a similar thing:

Mine is the sound of water being poured into a larger body of water.
For some reason, it makes me weak.

We call it "personal Kryptonite".
Is yours a sound? A sight? A smell?


The list starts here....

The mere mention of knee surgery. I've been lucky enough to keep mine healthy, but the talk of scoping a knee makes mine all weak and trembling.

And carnies. Smell like cabbage.

(my girlfriend's mom goes berserk over the sound of chewing something crunchy, i.e. potato chips. I think that's just kooky)

I hate the idea of my finger nails getting caught in anything with a cotton-like consistency. I think this is really weird and only the anonymity of the web allows me to admit it. Just thinking of it makes my skin crawl.

Girls. Women. Females. If they're not red kryptonite, they're green kryptonite. I don't blame them, though. It's not their fault I turn into an idiot.

My best friend's wife puts ice cubes in skim milk and actually LIKES it after they melt a little. Makes my knees weak. I can't even be in the same building if I know she's drinking it.

Solidarity, sibling! How about people who clean thier fingernails by scraping/gouging with their other fingernails? Clcik click click… Garn! Makes me want to sit in the driveway and eat gravel.

I can't stand the feel of a cotton ball at all. A raw cotton boll, no problem. Out of the bag, ugh

Ever get a little chain grease on your rim so that when you use your back brake you get this horrible SCREEEEEECH sound?

That.

Washing dishes... more specifically, my hands, after they have a chance to prune up a bit, running across wet glass.

Also lemon juice on fresh spinach and chopped carrots (like in a salad), tastes disgusting.

Oh my God, I hate that so much! My friend does it during class and I'm sitting next to him and I freak out.

I can't stand the sound of some people eating. Like it's bad if some people are chewing with their mouths open, but for some reason or another I can hear the mish-mash-mush sound of certain people even with their mouth closed and it freaks me out. I can't be in the same room with my father eating; it's probably just me, but it's my weird things.

If someone mentions cookies or cake I will do anything and go anywhere. I will climb the highest mountains and swim the widest oceans to get there.I <3 cookies and cake. If there were a campaign likethe old Klondike bar ads, "What would you do for a cookie?" I would do ANYTHING.

Ahh, finally, someone who understands! I cannot tell you how much I love cookies. And cake.

But I hate, really really hate, the thought of wet bread. *shudder* I also don't like it when people rub their eyebrows in the direction opposite of hair growth. I don't know why, I just really really hate that. Oh, and count me in, too, on the whole cotton ball fingernail thing AND the people clicking their nails.

Yikes, I wish I hadn't just thought of so many things that make me want to fall over and die.

A spoon that has been in someone's mouth and has streaks on it. And the sight of ice cream after its been slobbered all over. I even try to avoid licking my own ice cream, and instead take bites out of it. Blah.

Stupid men. And if they have long hair that's not well maintained, it's even worse. It's like a waste of good hair on a stupid dood.
