sCaRy


Art Card #43: sCaRy


What scares you?


Gecko's scare me! It took a lot of guts to admit here on-line to my fellow readers who may think I am strong and brave. They are not poisonous, don't have sharp teeth, or let off foul odors, so why am I so easily frightened by gecko's?
When I lived in Manila we had them in our house. Their skin is see-through. They hang out on the walls looking for insects to eat. It is kind of freaky to see their heart beating under their pale skin. I have a phobia that they will jump off the wall and onto me. Especially when I am most vulnerable; in the CR (comfort room). One time I was taking a shower and looked up to see one above me. I screamed. I don't like to be surprised like that while in the shower.

Great card. I have a daughter who is really scared of "insects"...specially wasp and spiders - and she can really scream if they get close to her.

I'm not sure about geckos... I've never seen a clear one before, but I am positive I am afraid of snakes. Not like dad is afraid of snakes... I just don't ever want to touch them.... eeewwwww!
