Wierdest trigger ever: tomatoes! It's terrible since I want to live in Belize when I graduate, but at least I'm starting to get better with it.

Other weird ones: lying on wood floors, orange ceiling lights, big hands, "Ain't that America" song, unfortunately Nora Jones, and people with moles in their eyes.

*The middle room in a hallway
*Dark hallways
*The old roll-top desks
*Gun cabinets
*Twin size beds
*Hearing about other children being abused

Muffled voices.
People standing in front of a window or doorway so bright that you can't see their faces.
Other things that are less strange, too... these are just the 2 that I don't understand.
