Welcome to another edition of our weekly posts about very random and often phunny phobias which have been medically documented in one reference book or another. Each Phriday we will list, define, and give an example of one of these irrational phears, phictional or otherwise.*
Asymmetriphobia - a phear of asymmetrical things
It may also be called -
- The phear of mismatched things
- The phear of one-sided things
- The phear of things that aren't symmetrical
- The phear of things that have a lack of symmetry
Maybe that's the way asymmetriphobia began...aphter looking through old baby photos you realize that there was something crazy about that sweater that Granny knitted you as a baby. Out of phear of offending her mother-in-law, she made you wear that out of kilter thing all the time. Now, 30 years later you have problems looking at this:
"Get me outta here! Straight lines! Must....have....straight lines! Neeeeedddd equality and balance!"
As always, have a wonderful weekend in the Lord Jesus, and remember iph you are asymmetriphobic, stay away phrom the abstract collection in your local art museum.
