31 Flavors of Fear

Updated: Apr 24

by Lisa Hamilton

Fear has now become the new pandemic.


Though the Coronavirus will pass, will this newfound phobia pass as well? Is there a vaccine that can inoculate us from this new strain of Crazy?


How did we develop Runatoipia? (fear of running out of toilet paper)

Or Freathing? (fear of breathing )



Fears of all kinds are popping up as plentiful as new flavors in Baskin Robbins ice cream store.


“ And what can I get you miss,” asks the server behind the counter.




“Oh, I’ll just have a single scope of marshmallow mylife’sover, in a cup please.”


"Whose next? Can I help the next customer?"


“Sure, I’ll take a double scoop of strawberry suicide, and chocolate chipmypants in a sugar cone..”


“And for you,” asks the server again, “how can I help you?”


“So many to chose from….

stockmarketcrash crunch,…endoftheworld swirl…. I’ll just take a simple meltdown malt, if you please, and a quart of rocky road to go.”

Such a medley of flavors which fear should we choose?


I have lost all my money in the stock market, and it will never come back.


I am surely going be one of the .002% to cash in my chips and buy the farm.


I need to buy a sleeping bag in preparation for being homeless.


My hairdresser will probably die and I will be ugly forever.


The trees will become an endangered species and we will never have toilet paper again.


Fears ad nauseam

Everyone is afraid of dying, I am afraid of not living.”


In choosing 31 flavors, I choose Joie de vivre with a cherry on top.
