Yep. annnnd I am TERRIFIED of spiders. Seriously, this photo CREEPS ME OUT. But, I am so PROUD of myself. Normally my reaction would be to freeze and scream...and probably cry, but I know my husband can't come save me right now- as he probably would have jumped out of bed to see what is wrong and end up hurting himself. So... I quickly finished my shower, never allowing this thing to leave my sight, and got out of there. Then, in my amazement of myself I took a photo or 12.... just so I can remember that I was able to be in proximity to this thing without dying.
I really don't know where my fear of spiders comes from... I don't remember being terrorized with them or anything like that. One of my first memories is a HUGE spider being on the floor and my mom stepping on it at least three times before it finally died. Maybe that is it, maybe not. I don't think spiders can kill me... as most cannot do any harm, and I am able to deal with creatures that can pose more harm than a spider...but nevertheless, these things scare me. *Sigh*. It is what it is, I guess.
What is your fear? If you don't like spiders either... what is your "scariest" encounter?
