48 - That's actually what started my globophobia. I had seven older male cousins and my big brother gang up on me when I was around six or so. They all popped as many balloons in my face and on any part of my body that they could. And I've been terrified of balloons ever since. I'm trying so hard to get over it. I'm actually making progress! I used to run into another room screaming, or if people are playing a game that involves popping balloons, I would run as far away as I could plugging my ears so I couldn't hear them pop. Now, my workplace, a car dealership, has balloons EVERYWHERE, inside and outside and I am able to walk passed or even underneath them without screaming. I just keep an eye on them. Lol, I'm so pathetic. But hey, everyone has their own fears, and some are silly to others. I used to tease people who afraid of silly things like clowns until I realized that hey, I'm afraid of balloons! How much more silly is that than clowns? So I refrain from judgement.
I, too, suffer from a fear of balloons. Which I openly admit is silly. Everyone has their own fears or phobias. Some are considered 'normal' fears, such as arachnophobia, and some may seem rather silly or ridiculous to others. However, people are genuinely afraid of them nonetheless. But you can't just sit there and tell me that you don't have any fears, silly or not.
Balloonophobia, that's something you don't see often!
Were there Nicolas Cage faces printed on each one of them?
