I have a phobia of wood and paper. I can't bear it if wood or paper goes anywhere near my or somebody else's mouth. It makes me feel awful just looking at wet wood or paper, or even the very thought of eating off a wooden plate, or touching any wood which hasn't been varnished. Even eating with a knife or fork that has a wooden grip makes me squirm! It sounds ridiculous, buy I swear, this is generally true.
