...and thats not even all of her story
masklophobia: the fear of mascots
not many people have admitted to this fear but we know its real.
i mean look at this picture:
how can you not be afraid of that?
for ali, just meeting barney effected her adult life forever.

"this mask fear also means a healthy fear of mascots. there are some people who love seeing them from a distance, but if they come too close, they freak out. of course, it's a fear that most children outgrow at later ages, but some of them retain that." -hubpages
