What's worse? For me, it's spiders. Now, I have to admit, I'm no sissy when it comes to spiders. I see one, I kill it, done. But the other day, I think one of 'em found me before I found him!
I was sitting out on the porch waiting for my son to drive in from Arkansas... I had been out there for several minutes. Then, when he arrived, I helped him carry stuff in and so I was outside, in the dark, for some time. I'm thinking that's when the little bugger paid me a visit!
After we were in the house for a few minutes, I got a real itchy spot on my 'backside' and thought it was a mosquito bite. I tried not to scratch it and it stopped itching. I didn't give it anymore thought until the next evening when I put on jeans and we went to see a movie. The minute I sat down in the seat, I felt a really scratchy spot on my 'backside' and when I felt it, it was swollen and bumpy. Hmmmm, not normal.
Once I got home I tried to look at it... pretty hard considering the location... I knew it was no mosquito bite! And yes, my sons would not help me out by looking at it for me! (no surprise, again, considering the location). I ended up taking a picture of it with my phone! No help there... couldn't tell if I was gonna die or not from that blurry photo! Anyway, I put acne stuff on it. It did eventually go down and is on the mend, but I do think it gave me a healthier view of spiders. They can really cause a fuss! Time for the Home Defense spray to come out and get used!!!
Snakes? I just leave 'em alone. I always understood that they did good stuff, so let them be... especially black snakes, they kill mice... and really, those are the things that scare me the most. If I found one in my house, I'd have to move... seriously.
