I am not afraid of cotton wool I just find the feel of it very unpleasant and try to avoid it if posssible but it does not stop me from using the stuff.  I cannot see why it should be unpleasant. I think it must be a sensory warning like a bitter tase or a bad smell but I can't think what.  Fine fibres can be very dangerous and irritating and the creaky feel may be a way of sensing fine fibres.

I hate snakes....Far as I know, nothing has happened involving a snake but when I see one I just jump out of my skin and am to afraid to even scream.

There are a lot of things I just don't like but snakes are the worst.

Did I just say that out loud?
