Question of the Day

Yesterday a small lizard — no more than a couple of inches long — got into our office. That’s not an uncommon occurrence here in Florida, yet when one of my co-workers spotted it, we heard a shriek that convinced three banshees to get out of the business. I was ordered to dispose of the poor little creature, which I did by harmlessly shooing it out the open door with a broom. My co-worker apologized for the outburst but allowed as how those little beasties bring out the terror in her. So that made me think; I know people that have phobias about everything from the expected spiders, snakes and bats to the unusual such as cats and birds. So…

What insect or critter inordinately freaks you out?

I used to be terrified of spiders, but I’m over it…I think.
