Today on the Tyra Banks show which I caught a bit of after getting sucked into the ending of the insidious Project Runaway they were doing an episode about confronting your fears. Tyra Banks is scared of dolphins.
Now I’m not one to talk with occasional social anxiety but at least I’m scared of land-based mammals but please!? Dolphins?
It got better.
Tyra had a girl who was scared of pennies.
No, not penises.
No, not JC Pennies.
Copper, US Mint 1 cent pennies.
She couldn’t bear to be in a room with pennies. So of course Tyra introduces her to dip her hands into an aquarium of pennies. To keep with the theme of no personal development without pricey trinket, Tyra had buried an expensive watch in a box in the pennies so the girl had to dig through.
But the girl had those really long fingernails that creep me out. All I think about when I see fingernails that long is someone eating Doritos or pork rinds and I think about all the crusty muck that gets caught under those nails. Yuck.
But yes – fear of pennies.
