Party! Party!

Phobias

 Interviewer What exactly is your phobia, Scott? 

Scott Well, the medical name is Felinophobia or Gatophobia. 

Interviewer And what does that mean exactly?

Scott It means I'm afraid of cats. 

Interviewer Cats? 

Scott Yes. 

Interviewer How long have you had this phobia?

Scott Since I was a child. 

Interviewer And how did it start? 

Scott When I was five or six years old, I remember going to a friend's house and I saw a cat on the stairs. And the cat was looking at me, well staring at me. I went to touch it, and it bit me. And since then I've always been afraid of cats. 

Interviewer What happens if you see a cat?  

Scott Well, I start to feel very nervous, my hearts beats quickly. And I have to go away very quickly from where the cat is. For example, if I see a cat in the street, I always cross to the other side. 

Interviewer What do you do?  

Scott I'm a doctor.  

Interviewer Is your phobia a problem for you in your work? Scott Yes, sometimes. For example, if I go to a house and there is a cat I have to ask the people to put the cat in another room. I can't be in the same room as a cat.  

Interviewer Have you ever had any treatment for your phobia? 

Scott Yes, I've just started going to a therapist. I've had three sessions.  

Interviewer How's it going? 

Scott Well, now I can look at a photo of a cat without feeling nervous or afraid. And I can touch a toy cat. The next step will be to be in a room with a real cat. 

Interviewer Do you think you will ever lose your phobia of cats? 

Scott I hope so. I'm optimistic. Who knows, maybe one day I'll have a cat as a pet.

When marimba rhythms start to play
Dance with me, make me sway
Like a lazy ocean hugs the shore
Hold me close, sway me more

Like a flower bending in the breeze
Bend with me, sway with ease
When we dance you have a way with me
Stay with me, sway with me

Other dancers may be on the floor
Dear, but my eyes will see only you
Only you have the magic technique
When we sway I go weak

I can hear the sounds of violins
Long before it begins
Make me thrill as only you know how
Sway me smooth, sway me now

Other dancers may be on the floor
Dear, but my eyes will see only you
Only you have the magic technique
When we sway I go weak

I can hear the sounds of violins
Long before it begins
Make me thrill as only you know how
Sway me smooth, sway me now
You know how
Sway me smooth, sway me now
