Hi Catcat. Good fear! (but that one was supposed to start with a 'u' Shhh )



Argh! I can't believe I did it again. But at least I can partly redeem myself with an explanation. Following is my original phobia, which was fine until I decided to make it even better... which apparently made it worse. Thanks DragOn and Alice for making me laugh and for your patience.

Hmmm - maybe that was a bit subtle - or was it stupid?

It was a version of 'i-padaphobia', with some letters moved one space to the left or right on the keyboard.

vemicelliniphobia - fear that your gold salt-cellar will develop worms.
