10 illogical fears that I have

1. Being stuck in a dentist chair with a Doctor who has nasal drip
2. Plugging up the toilet when I use someone else's restroom and then discovering that the bathroom has no plunger
3. Flu-like symptoms that lead to a rare and deadly disease
4. Spiders crawling into my mouth when I sleep
5. Sending an intimate text message to the wrong person
6. The fear that I've signed up for a college level math class and I just forgot to attend or drop the course and then have to learn ALL of the material the night before the final
7. Accidentally getting wrapped up with the mafia
8. My car exploding because I have too much static electricity when I go to pump gas
9. Meat that has been undercooked
10. The fear that I'll forget to lock the bathroom door on a flight and be publicly exposed

Take Me Out to the Ball Game!

Salt Lake Bees - Pitchers
Originally uploaded by dyetochange
Last night, Gabe and I went to a Bees Baseball game in Salt Lake City. We bought tickets from a scalper and ended up front row in front of first and just over the dugout. We both bought these amazing foot long hot dogs and my joy must have been obvious because the photographer in the dugout kept snapping pics of me gleefully eating the dog! It was a cool night, and Gabe lovingly let me wear his coat when I got too cold. It ended up being a very happy and fun date night!

(As a side note, my fear of being shown fearfully batting away some fly ball while being publicly booed ala Sandra Bullock in "Two Weeks Notice," wasn't realized. I've never been great at catching a ball. In fact, when I was a child I played softball for a short season until my appendix ruptured one summer. The long recovery after my surgery was terrible, but my one consolation was that I wouldn't have to finish out the softball season! :)
