Some people are afraid of snakes, some people hate spiders, others are afraid of heights, for me it's always been aliens. I can't remember when or how this phobia started but I do remember refusing to go see ET.
Now that I am a not-silly, full-grown adult I can keep this phobia under wraps...most of the time. The exception? When those "unsolved mystery" shows are on TV and when crazy stuff like this is printed in the paper. Seriously folks...I don't need this right now...come back later...like in 500 years.
