Here we are on Day 4 of the 31 Day Blog Challenge, hosted by Boy Oh Boy, and today the question is What Are You Afraid Of?
The two things that I am most phobic about are spiders and heights – so if you put me on a roof with a really big spider that would be the end of me – LOL.
I’m actually able to deal with smaller spiders nowadays as long as they aren’t running or jumping around – when they start moving I get freaked out! If I can find someone else to take care of them though that is much better. But we have woods behind us and in those woods live Wolf spiders and those Wolf spiders scare me beyond words – sigh. They are big, they are hairy, I mean really, you can see their fangs!! That’s so not good!
As far as heights, I’m fine if I’m enclosed and up high, but I do not like open heights, ladders, things like that. I remember as a kid having to climb very tall ladders to pick apples and cherries in our orchard – I hated that, I was always sure I was going to fall. I never did but logic is not going to play a part in this, so let’s just move on shall we. And I am not admitting to the fact that the ladders really weren’t *that* tall, they just seemed taller because I was a kid – but that would be logical also and we’ve already dealt with that issue!
There are certainly other things I’m afraid of – poisonous snakes (although I like other snakes just fine, especially garter/garden snakes and black snakes), creepy bugs (like cockroaches or those cicadas that seem to always want to attack me), getting trapped in my car in deep water (yes, I know, I live in a land locked city so this is unlikely to happen – what did I say earlier about logic?!), and public speaking (I got an A in a public speaking class but it still scares me).
And no, I am not neurotic in the least, thank you very much
If you look closely you can see the Wolf spiders just lurking in the woods waiting for the perfect moment to pounce – trust me, they are there! LOL
So, what are you afraid of?
