I am scared of oncoming traffic. I didn't realize this until I spent 10 months away from it...and then this summer on our road trip I was reminded of how much I dislike oncoming traffic. I'm afraid that the other driver will swerve at the last moment and hit me head-on; or at least that he'll mis-judge his lane position and swipe off my mirror or something. Seriously, as I drive along some nearly-deserted road in northern Canada, each and every vehicle I approach makes my heart pound just a little...
I'm also scared that when I open the oven to get out something, the oven door will flip up and burn my arm. I think I may have known someone who had this happen to them, but I confess I'm not sure. I just know that I always make sure to set the door all the way down before I start reaching in (I never reach in with it open halfway).
Of course I have real, deep, valid sorts of fears too...but they are not so quirky.

C'mon now, it's your turn. What silly things are you scared of?
