On the drive home, I was reminded of how much I hate looking at hoards of small things moving together. I wouldn’t call it a phobia because I’m not scared of it, but it physically makes me uncomfortable to watch a bunch of little things all clumped together and moving.
I can’t watch ants swarming over a piece of candy because it makes my skin crawl, gives me the chills, and eventually, if I stare at it long enough, I’ll probably just throw up. Is this a common thing? Only one other person I know has the same problem I do, but I don’t think it’s as bad for her.
I’m still not sure what the thing that made me feel “icky” on the drive home was. It looked like a whole lot of ash on the road, but it was fluttering around on a huge expanse of road, kind of like small leaves being blown across, but it was everywhere. I had to force myself to not look at the ground in front of my car and look at the top of the car in front of me’s hood.
