Crumpets Are Kind Of Terrifying When You Think About It

“I have a problem with holes in general. The other day I saw a group of straws pointing upwards at work and I was terrified. I also hate Crunchies because the honeycomb looks like a great big group of holes. But my biggest fear has always been crumpets. I can’t explain why. My first memory them was when I was about five. My mum had made them for breakfast and when she plonked them down in front of me I just started screaming. The worst thing about it was that she kept chasing me around the house trying to make me eat them. She thought I was being naughty and didn’t understand how scared I was.”
