Spiders.....Yikes!

Day 10 of Blog Challenge-Something you are afraid of?
SPIDERS

All spiders freak me out.....but I'm especially afraid of the spider you may eat while sleeping. Have you ever heard you eat so many spiders a year in your sleep? Supposedly it's myth and almost impossible to do. Last week I woke up at 1:30 am gagging, I ran to the bathroom gagging and threw up! Sorry TMI and gross! My first thought was holy shit I ate a spider .....! I didn't see a spider amongst everything! Still not convinced I didn't eat a spider I imagine it clinging to the side of my throat as my dinner came up.

So there you have it Spiders are number one on afraid of what list....oh there's a list and it's long!

My daughter has a real spider phobia...I won't be mentioning that whole 'eating' thing to her : )

Uohh, such fears must be horrible!
Poor darling to get so spooked!
I do not fear any creature, but I got a little uneasy about all the scorpions in our bedrooms in Italy last summer! We caught them in water glasses and moved them to freedom outside the windows!
Imagine this!!!
I am sure the swallowing thing is certainly unusual, perhaps not realistic!

ewwwwwwww....... I never heard the tale of eating spiders during sleep... now this will keep me up tonight........

Hope it was just a quick bug passing thru, but not a spider of course..... Just think of Charlotte, of Charlotte's web, the sweetest little spider in the world of fiction..... xo

Little, tiny spiders that I can squish with one finger aren't *too* bad, but any finger and I'm going in the opposite direction. I also have issues with snakes.. all varieties of snakes.

Yuck! Spiders creep me out and I always freak out whenever I happen to see one .... especially like the big black one that must have crawled up the shower drain while we were away!
