Look away now if you have...

Do you have hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia? If you struggle with spelling, as much of the population does, of course you do. But even those of us who don't struggle with spelling would have a difficult time getting that one correct... even without an actual fear of long words.

How about paraskavedekatriaphobia? (fear of Friday the 13th)
Kathisophobia? (fear of sitting down)
Arachibutyrophobia? (fear of peanut butter sticking to the roof of the mouth)

Do you think we can claim didaskaleinophobia as a way to stave off the looming inevitable?

If you have a little time for some silliness during these last fleeting days of summer break, check out more on The Phobia List.
