I have always and still am utterly afraid of ladders and electricity. I cannot plug anything into a new electrical socket unless someone has plugged something in first while I watch. I buy electronics, but again, have to watch as someone plugs it into the wall first before I can use it.
Ladders.... My dad used to clean the chimney and all my sisters would climb up on the roof using the ladder. Me? I climbed up the side of the house and back down that way... I dance up trees, and jump out of planes. I pretend of am going to jump off bridges and cliffs.... But get me near a ladder, cherry picker, scaffolding.... I get all panicy.
