Bugs are at the top of that very short list. ...and getting hit in the face but we will discuss that another time.
I love everything about the summer time EXCEPT bugs. They drive me insane.
I have had some very disturbing experiences with bugs so I try to limit my contact with them.
Many years ago I was traveling abroad and I was forced to stay at a place that was infested with ants. I mean, the floor was moving, kind of infestation. I spent the night trying to stay away from them. Finally in the wee hours of the morning I slipped into the bathroom to take a shower and when I was finished I grabbed my pile of clean clothes. As I was slipping my undies on I noticed several ants were crawling on them-- AHHHH! Me and ants are no longer on speaking terms. I see them and I spray without asking questions.
I also have a great fear of spiders. (I can't even bring myself to put a real picture of one here-- too gross.) The Mister is always in charge of bug killing. One day, after he left for work, I saw a huge (I mean like 50 cent piece big) spider with the hairy chunky legs and I lost it. After letting out my inner girl, I went back into the room and threw a bowl over it. It was nasty. I shut the door and left it there for the rest of the day until the Mister came home from work several hours later. It was quite traumatic I assure you.
Finally, my latest foe is the mosquito. Our family has been invited several places lately for outside parties. We always bring our bug spray but the mosquitos are still unbelievable. It makes me instantly angry. There is nothing worse than a bug that bothers you and then keeps you itching for days to come. The insanity of it all! So I've sent the Mister out to our yard to spray for them several times. I'm going to nail those suckers once and for all. It's war!
Who's with me?
