The weather has been so beautiful lately! The birds have been chirping in the morning and I went on a walk earlier today with Becky and Tabor, my dog. I love walks with my best friend because it’s just nice to catch up but to also be outside, enjoying the weather. It’s weird to think that just last Thursday it snowed here, and now it’s 80 degrees (Fahrenheit)! Craziness!
I put away the space heater earlier that I use during winter when my room gets unbearably cold. My room has been a little stuffy actually, so I went to open my windows and OH MY GOSH THERE IS A SPIDER THE SIZE OF MY HEAD. (Okay, maybe not that big, but this thing is huge.)
I shrieked and slammed my window shut just to realize that it was on the inside, and that I just trapped it inside my room. Frantically, desperately trying to get it out of my room, I fling my window back open and I think I sent it flying somewhere in the depths of my cluttered and disorganized room. I now have no idea where it’s at and keep imagining bugs crawling all over me.
I’m absolutely terrified of spiders, well bugs in general, really, but spiders most of all. When I think about it, it’s such an irrational fear. Spiders don’t really cause a lot of harm; sure they can bite you but it’s highly unlikely that they are deadly. So why am I scared of them?
Another silly thing that I’m scared of is thunderstorms. I’m not sure what it is about them; maybe because they’re loud and creepy and the perfect time to kill someone; or maybe it’s the rain slamming against my window. Either way, it makes me feel like a four year old and I just hide under my covers and hope it passes soon.
Are you scared of something that is rather silly or doesn’t make sense?
