Heights and Bees
Another thing you probably didn't know about me: I'm afraid of heights, and bees. I'd rather give birth than climb out onto some ledge. Once, at a retreat, I actually got up the courage to attempt a rock-climbing wall. This was a very big deal to me.
I made it to the top, only to find a hornet's nest at the top. Two fears for the price of one.
I'm surprised I didn't panic. I repelled down -- which was fun once I discovered how secure I had been all along--and lived to tell about it.
