    Agree with you both about the needles–metal should not allowed to go through human skin.
    I am also absolutely terrified of unintentionally saying or doing something that will make people think I’m an idiot. The unintentional part is key: acting like an idiot just because it’s fun is, well, fun. When I lose my self-awareness enough that it is no longer “acting an idiot” but rather “being an idiot,” and then I realize what I have just done… I can’t stand it. Which is why I self-censor as much as possible.

  2. Ah, a deep episode. You got me a little verklempt. Well done.

    Gerard Manley Hopkins is my favorite poet in all the world, by the way.

    But CLOWNS, you guys. COME ON.

    Also dolls.

    And spiders are very, very bad.

    If I saw a clown doll that had a spider crawling on its face? I’d probably go into a coma from the shock. In the Hobbit movie, during the spider scene, I literally had to hold my throat with my hands so I wouldn’t gag. I had my eyes shut, but the SOUNDS they made were horrific.

    Here’s how you get over needles: have six kids. I used to have a terrible phobia of needles and I’d faint if I ever had to get a shot or have blood drawn. Six pregnancies/deliveries later, needles don’t really faze me. In some cases, desensitization really works.
