Some people leave the “h” off “haphephobia”. You might try looking up “aphephobia”.
Thanks for the kind words on this one. Joe was a very sad case. We all took care of him as best we could.
Yes indeed. It was terrible, and we should all be glad we don’t have that problem.
Felix and I grew up in the toughest neighborhood in the city. It was the only part of town where Doctors would not make house calls in the days when Doctors did that. Any of us would have robbed your eye teeth if given the opportunity.
It’s interesting to note that none of us ever gave Joe trouble. We would warn unknowing social workers, or strangers, not to dare touch Joe. Kids have a sixth sense about such things.
I don’t know what happened to Joe. He just suddenly disappeared from the scene one day.
