genetic and you’re not born with them. Phobias
often create after a traumatic event during early
childhood. These phobias are usually specific
phobias. A social phobia is another kind that
usually occurs between the ages of 15 and 20.

                                                         NBC. The premise of the show is this guy, Chuck

                                                         moments, romantic issues, and hilarious missions.

                                      By Elizabeth Magnan

                                      Once in a lonesome face Moustache and
                                      a Beard lived. They both lived happily
                                      on the lower side of the Nose and were
                                      quite happy. Moustache lived on under
                                      the nose and above the Lips road and
                                      Beard lived on under the Lips street.
                                      The two were great friends, but one day
                                      Moustache went missing. Beard lived all
                                      alone and became a wild and scraggly
                                      little thing, but one day a Moustache
                                      wondered back to under the nose and
                                      above the lips road and all was well
                                      again. But then a new problem arose.
                                      Dr. Lips was in the way of making the
                                      two friends best friends. So they called
                                      up their friend Mr. Hair to get hold of
                                      the duck tape. The three of them worked
                                      hard and after a long five minutes SNAP
                                      a piece came off. Mr. Hair held the role
                                      of tape watching the two friends place the
                                      piece over the lips. Until later when the
                                      person actually woke up were the friends
                                      able to talk. Well sort of. THE END
