@olivebee My cat is squeamish about bugs while also being very interested in them. So when we get water bugs (construction next door, alas), he flips them over with one carefully extended paw and then chirps for me to come and dispose of it. It's a system.
@queenofbithynia My first ever recurring nightmare (that I can recall) was about my mother making me get into a bathtub that had a bunch of dead crane flies floating in it. I've been horrified by them ever since.

@phillystout OH GOD NO. I've been contemplating going back to short hair (But it took so long to grow out! But it's such a pain to deal with now!), and this comment may be what pushes me over the edge.
@Emby I think I'm more terrified of a raccoon full of cicadas than of either one alone. Not sure why.
