Take a good look at this pile of wooden ice cream sticks. Now: imagine one of them running between your teeth.
Are you screaming? Horrified? Disgusted? Don't worry — you're not alone.
Turns out lots of people have this same thing.
So what's going on here?
The fear of Popsicle sticks is probably one form of a larger phobia known as xylophobia.
Xylophobia is the irrational fear of wooden objects and/or a fear of forests.
GET IT OUT, AHHHH
Make it stop!
Why would you???
Someone help this young woman!!!!!
