When FDR said "We have nothing to fear but fear itself" I think he actually forgot about a few things, namely deep water (and everything in it), spiders, crazy family members, rejection, accidentally losing a limb to a chainsaw, failure, and clowns. Why would I have a picture of these frightening things? What, you want me to take a picture and have it on hand just so I can post it for today's edition of the Thirty Day Challenge? Ha!
Of course that is exactly what Honey did last summer. Well, Honey didn't know I would eventually need a picture of something scary, but that's exactly what I have in the form of a picture of a spider. Last summer we were in Florida for a few days visiting Bestie #2's family. We saw plenty of spiders (one managed to keep me awake all night because it was rather large and liked to scurry from baseboard to baseboard in my room but it was so fast I couldn't kill it -- so I ended up staying awake until 4AM until I was so exhausted that I fell asleep sitting up). The largest was outside on the wall of the house. Thank GOD it was not inside! Just looking at this photo makes me nauseous, which is why I have successfully ignored it for months. But now, here it is:
You may ask why I haven't just deleted this horrible photo. I guess the answer, at least today, would be that you never know when you might need a picture of something frightening for a blog post.
