Living life in the carpool lane..

Random factoid.. #3.. Creepy crawlies..

Posted on: March 11, 2009

I am freakishly afraid of bugs.. even when they are encased in glass.. and dead..

I have always been afraid of bugs.. I think it stems back to the time that my dad tried to chase me around the house with a dead bug they killed in the kitchen.  I screamed throughout the house and then locked myself in the bathroom and wouldn’t come out for the longest time.

Bugs are gross.. especially when you step on them and you feel them crunch underneath your shoe.. ew.

In college I was taking a zoology class and one day in lab, we had insects.  They were dead.. and in glass cases.

I could not sit in my seat.. I had to sit all the way in the back of the class where there were no bugs.  I couldn’t even look into the cases..

Yet.. being a biologist.. I was able to dissect cats.. rats.. fish.. and other things.. I am able to work with various animal parts.. and not even flinch..

But bugs… blech!
