Question of the day

Are you afraid of insects?

I am deathly afraid of them. Not so much of spiders, at least not the spiders here, as they aren’t dangerous. But wasps, or bees, OMG I am terrified! I have never been stung by one, I think that’s why I get so scared! I don’t want to ever be stung! I literally freak out if I hear one near me. I also think its due to the fact I cant see them, I can only hear them buzzing around my ears or head. I hate going outside in summer because of them, I mean I do go out, but I’d go out way more often if there were no bees or wasps. Eating food outside is a huge no no for me. Occasionally if we’re at the beach or having a bbq I will eat food, but I always rush my food then, just in case one comes and lands on me or on my food! I’m even afraid of houseflies! I’m not afraid of butterflies and I can deal with things like moths and other creepy crawlies. But don’t let one land on me! I’d literally go mental!
So what about you? How do you feel about them? Are you someone who screams in fear when you see them?

bugs, bugs in my tent
Man! I dont believe it!
I hate, hate bugs
No, no no!
Say it isnt so!
They creep and crawl
And I scream and call!
I want out!
I shout, and I pout!
Im not staying in here!
No way, I am living in fear!
Camping is not for me!
Cant you see!
Bugs, bugs, everywhere
I’m outa here!
I dont care!
