Something that I am afraid of.....

This is the Neuse River Bridge in New Bern, NC.

The Alfred J. Cunningham Bridge in Charleston, SC.

The Cape Fear River Bridge in Wilmington, NC.

My fear - Driving over tall bridges that cross water.  What is so ironic about this fear is that the top bridge is one of the main bridges just about 2 miles from my house.  I live less than 40 miles from the central NC coast, I am SURROUNDED by water.  I have to drive over bridges that cross water all the time.  But it is the TALL ones that get to me though.  An irrational fear I know, but a fear none the less.  When I do have to drive over bridges that freak me out, I turn my music up loud, clutch the steering wheel tight, and sing at the top of my lungs all the way across.  And if I can avoid them, I will go out of my way to do so.  Last trip I made to Williamsburg, VA - I took a ferry across rather than take the bridge/tunnel.  :::::Shudder:::::::

So, what are YOUR irrational fears??
