When Was the Last Time You Had the Heebie-Jeebies ? 

Week of April 18, 2001

Jay Diamond
Physical Therapist/Clinic Director, Pro Rehab
"I'd say a few weeks back, when I was lying in bed with my son, Jesse. We were reading a book, and all of a sudden he turned on his side, and he, uh, tooted on my thigh. Well, there was no odor but it was the vibrations that got me."

Tawnya Braun
"Probably when I was waiting for my epidural -- or maybe it was when they said they were taking the epidural away."

Ben Stair
Barista, Starbucks Coffee
"Anytime I think about my 2-year-old son being in danger, I get severe heebie-jeebies, and last night I saw on the news that a little boy had been seriously mauled by a dog. There were graphic shots of his wounds, poor kid, and it kind of got to me later. It's hard enough to comfort a child over the everyday scrapes and bruises, but when they're in real physical pain, you feel even more useless."

Robin Stillwell
Student, Webster Groves High School
"Yesterday, when I was with my friends at this restaurant and they asked how was my boyfriend, and I told them I wasn't with him anymore. Like, I didn't want to tell, but I had to. After that, it was OK, but leading up to it there were all these nervous and awkward feelings"

Chris Shoemaker
Salesman, McMahon Ford
"Oh boy -- I would have to say the last time I was up on the Arch on a windy day. The fire extinguisher on the wall was swinging back and forth, just to give an idea of how shaky it was. I got the butterflies in the tummy, and the hair on the back of my neck was standing up."

Patsy Forsyth
Photographer's Assistant
"Well, if something ever did make me feel that way, it's got to be those big, black water bugs that crawled out from the fridge during my college days."
