A is for Ablutophobia #atozchallenge

There was a young boy whose name was Steve
For whom washing was the biggest peeve
He was begged to shower
As he stank by the hour
But he refused and was asked to leave

(C) Sanch @ Living my Imperfect Life

Note: Ablutophobia is the fear of washing or bathing.

    I pity Steve’s folk
    It’s certainly no joke
    To live with the stink
    What would the neighbours think?
    Into hot water
    Stinky Steve must go
    They should brook no quarter
    And endure it no more! πŸ˜›

    That sure is a stinky phobia! πŸ˜‰ An interesting phobia as all phobias are…I think they come to us from past lives…. πŸ˜‰ <3

      Now that’s interesting about the past life Elly…my understanding of phobias is that they tend to be learnt either through a bad experience personally or vicariously.
