Arachnophobe.

day16

Todayโ€™s task was to talk of fears, in a style distinct from my own. So in taking a break from my seemingly endless sentences I have crammed ten full stops into just fifty three words…

 

Arachnophobe.

My blood had chilled. It was flowing around my body in an icy haze. He was taunting me. I was petrified.

He could read every sign. Of course he could. You donโ€™t miss much with eight eyes.

I was minding my own business. He invaded my peripheral. Now we were at a standoff.

  3. I love it! I actually like spiders. They eat bugs! I try and keep a few in the house.

    1. Yes but you’re a cat. You eat them too ๐Ÿ˜‰

      1. Only if they come down onto the bed! Then is fair game. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      2. This is why I have always loved cats! When I was little I used to pick mine up and point it at any spiders so he gobbled them up and I didn’t have to get rid of them.

    2. Ooh no I couldn’t do that. Knowing my luck if I kept just one small one it’d lay eggs and then there would be big trouble…

      1. LOL! I’ve had that happen in the cellar. My wife went down to do laundry and came running up screaming. They had hatched and covered half the ceiling with webs overnight. ๐Ÿ˜€

        1. Oh no!! That sounds absolutely horrific!

          1. Yah, even I was a little creeped out. :-}
