As part of my Blogtober challenge I’ve been given a topic to write about each day of October. Today’s title is “Share a secret about yourself”.
I’ve really struggled to think of any secrets that I have, I’m quite an over sharer! I do have a bit of a weird phobia that I haven’t told many people about. I absolutely hate the feel of sponge and foam. It completely makes my skin crawl. Bath sponges, sponge balls, washing up sponges (those green and yellow ones), foam packaging. I hate the way they all feels. I’m not quite as bad as I used to be I can just about bring myself to touch it but I try and avoid any encounters with sponge.
I’ve had my weird sponge hate as long as I can remember. I went to a gymnastics classes when I was little and begged my dad to not take me anymore when I realised that there was a pit of foam to fall into when you were practicing on the high equipment. I also used to hate those foam balls that they used to use in PE classes when I was at school.
So there it is my very strange secret phobia. I would love to know if there are any other sponge haters in the world – if you share my phobia please let me know!
