An irrational fear of Public Speaking? Not me – I love it.
I have a totally rational fear of not being laughed at in public.
Sometimes, it’s no fun being a stand up Comic.
This is my entry for the Trifextra Week 90 Challenge: 33 words, using the prompt, ‘what scares me‘. Click here for more details and to view the other posts.

That’s a great take on the prompt. Terrific twist. Just realised I could have done ‘public speaking’ too.
Great and unique take on the prompt. The fear of “dying” on stage must be overwhelming.
haha that’s a nice twist!
Ha… this is great — totally rational
To do stand up and be greeted with silence or tepid applause would be awful. Sounds, to me, like you need to go to Soundcloud.com and lay down some audio tracks for us to hear. Not that I’m challenging you or anything but, just sayin’, ya know. 🙂 Loved your take on the prompt. Love public speaking, too.
I think I’ll leave the stand-up to my character. He enjoys it – as long as he gets the laughs!
Interesting! I don’t mind public speaking a bit, but I really hate it when a joke falls flat. It’s a tough job, I’d imagine! Thanks for linking up. Don’t forget to vote.
Funny! Silence is not good when you’re looking for a laugh.
Stand-up is not for the faint-hearted! I’m happier behind a keyboard…
lol Great twist!
Ah! Great twist. Never thought about it from that POV. Nice job!
I think it could be a lonely occupation, without the positive feedback.
