COMMENTS:

I would not be at all surprised to find that Amy actually existed. I haven't gone down that road personally, but I could easily see someone developing a strong aversion like that. - ErWenn, 2007-10-08: 10:56:00

They do exist: a former workmate had an extreme fastidiousness about the apple and pear skins. - OZZIEBOB, 2007-10-08: 18:33:00

Hidermaphobia

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: hy derm a fobe eeya

Sentence: Heidi had Hidermaphobia and could not hide it. Whether she travelled to Hyderabad or Hernando's Hideaway, she could not eat the hide of any fruit or any vegetable. She could not hide from it. In fact her fear was so great, a-pare-entally she could not even peel them. The eyes on potatoes stared at her accusingly;eating cherries was the pits;beets had her beat;peas made her snap and she feared bananas a bunch. She'd turnip her nose at rutabagas; carrots made her want to top herself and onions made her cry. It was then no wonder that when the cute guy in Produce asked her to go out on a "date", she ran screaming from the grocery store! Now Heidi is in hiding.

Etymology: Hide(body covering of a living animal or the dressed skin of an animal) & Derma (the deep vascular inner layer of the skin) & Phobia (fear; an anxiety disorder characterized by extreme and irrational fear of simple things or social situations)

Dermaffright

mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: der-ma-fright

Sentence: When she was a small child, Sue had a dermaffright when a clown slipped on a banana peel in front of her at the circus. Her brother, always looking for an opportunity to torment his little sister, would chase her around the house with banana skins, orange skins or anything else that came from a fruit or vegetable. After several years of therapy she came to the conclusion that it was the clown she was afraid of, not the skin, and now she can enjoy fruit again, although not bananas yet because she developed a fear of monkeys after seeing a Discovery Channel special.

Etymology: derma: skin (greek-dermis) + affright: sudden terror

Repeelant

Created by: astorey

Pronunciation: ree-peel-ant

Sentence: Nadia could still see her father picking the skin off a baked chicken, slurping it into his mouth and smacking his lips. Ew.

In a three-month stint as a server at TGI Fridays, Nadia served enough Loaded Potato Skins (tm) to make her repeelant complete and irreversible.

Etymology: Repellant combined with peel.
