The Queen's Meme #88 ~ The Phobia Meme

Welcome to The Queen's Meme
7 Royal Questions on Tuesday

Welcome to the Queen's Meme. I am happy to be back amongst the memesters! I've made up a brand new meme for your memeing entertainment. Let's talk about fears today.  A phobia is an irrational fear of something and is classified as an anxiety disorder. Do you know that millions of people are deathly afraid of bugs?  That's called entomophobia: a fear of insects. It's a virtual epidemic! I personally have 3 phobias at the moment that I can think of. Motophobia (I'm working on that one), murophobia (fear of rodents) and forgetfulphobia (fear of...of....sorry, I forgot)
I trust you to be honest and not look in the dictionary for the correct answers until after you've completed your assignment meme. Do I have your word of honor? (The correct answers will magically appear on my blog tomorrow)

Why did I stop at 12? Because I'm afraid of the number 13.
That's triskaidekaphobia for all you non-phobia speakers.

Identify these six common (and uncommon) phobias. You can answer rightly if you know the correct answer or spoof them all!  Define the following phobias.

1. What is mysophobia?

2.  Ailurophobia

3.  Technophobia

4.  Novercaphobia

5.  Dipsophobia

6.  Gymnophobia

7.  Hippophobia

8. Hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia

9.  Lachanophobia

10. Uranophobia

11.  Levophobia

12. Make up your own phobia word and explain what you are afraid of.

Mysophia is my fear that I will never have a sofa in this lifetime. We have a futon but I want a sofa. Or a couch.

Ailurophobia must be a fear of being too alluring.

Technophobia. Either it's fear of technology or fear of being forced to listen to techno music. Yuck.

Nover...afraid of novacaine?

Dipsophobia must mean you are afraid to eat dip at a party, fearing there may be double-dippers in the crowd.

I'm afraid of the gym, which is what I think gymnophobia would mean.

Hippos are something to fear. Loch Ness monster fear? Regular monster fear?

Fear of the planet Uranus? Fear of being left alone?

Those weren't easy, Mimi.

My phobia? Commentophobia - fear of having one's blog comments ridiculed.

I don't know about the others that are listed but I have Walmartaphobia. Don't know why, but most times I just dread going there. Perhaps too big, too noisey, too many people, too everything!
