I do not like spiders or snakes for sure!
When I was younger, before 1st grade, my sister Lisa would chase me around our yard with garter snakes. After I became older, I realized garter snakes are harmless, but back when I was only 6 or 7 they terrified me. I am still not very cozy with the creatures and they still kind of weird me out, but I can tolerate them a little.
Spiders, OH MY GOODNESS... I hate spiders. I remember back when I was in high school, calling my boyfriend to come over to my house while my parents were at work just to kill a spider for me. As soon as he heroically saved me from the spider I kicked him out of the house because he was not allowed to be there without my parents being home. I did not want to go against their rules. I would end up telling my Mom what I did and she always laughed, so I think I had her approval.
I became braver regarding spiders once my children were born. I would kill them so they would not get my babies. NOW if they are big and ugly, I just ask the boys to kill it for me. If I am alone, and they are big I will kill them, because the stupid things like to bite me while I am sleeping. For some reason, I am seeing a lot of spiders lately. I do not remember this many spiders in the past for this time of year. Fall, yes, typically trying to come in from the cold but spring I do not recall as many and nearly as big.
I just do not like spiders and snakes...
And do not even get me started about cockroaches and mice!
