I would fight these creatures right now (No I wouldn’t)


                                                            Hello Lovelies, 

I actually really enjoyed my wasps blog last week, so I think I’m just going to do a freebee one.   It’s not going to have facts; it’s mostly just going to be me ranting about my childhood self.                                                                                            My childhood self being my fear of certain bugs and how I developed the fear of them.




I was getting off the bus with my friend who was visiting my house, when it came to me at full force.   I yelled, and thrashed, and called for the police.   Literally fighting for my life, but all I could hear was my friend’s laughter.   Then, while I was punching the air I felt my friend pull me by the bookbag and she said; “Girl, calm down what is wrong with you?” 

I looked at her like she just had the audacity, she didn’t know that this creature was vicious.  So, I told her with all seriousness; “What do you mean?  It’s a butterfly!” 

If any of you ever watched SpongeBob, I hope you remember watching the episode about WORMY — Sandy’s petthat basically terrorized the town.   I mean, all Patrick and SpongeBob and Patrick wanted to do was play tag with him, but he just had to roam loosely.  The show made butterflies look so terrifying, looking all weird with their antennas and such, then does anyone remember the close up when it was BUZZING!  That moment literally started my whole fear.  

There was also that episode on Authur when Binky got bit by a butterfly; I think, in all honesty it may just have been a fever dream, but these are the reasons why butterflies used to frighten me.   They don’t as much now, but sometimes I still screech if one flies to close. 


Even though I loved my grandma to death, I have to admit that sometimes she was a BULLY. 

She had these weird methods of discipline but one of the meanest ones to me personally is when she used to drag me to the window and put ladybugs on me.  Yes, you heard correctly.  When I was young, I used to think that ladybugs would bite me, and it’ll be my last day.  That the countdown would start, and I’ll have twenty-four hours.  My Grandma knew this, but she wanted me to get over my fear while also learning that I shouldn’t leave her refrigerator door open.  

She would call me from the kitchen and tell me that her glasses fell in between the blinds.   I’ll leave my Qubo (if you know you know) and unexpectedly walk to my designated horror. 

She was like; “Come on now chile, I can’t see nun.”  

I was like; “I am coming Gramzie (my nickname for her, long story)”  

When I made it over there, I cringed at the spider webs and dust bunnies on the blinds, but those were overshadowed by the fact that there were no glasses there.  

Then as soon as I was about to say something, I felt something light but prickly on my cheek, then I heard her mocking tone; “Girl, there’s a ladybug on you!” 

Then she said it with a southern accent.  I threw a fit.  My mind was really questioning my love for her.  I mean it wasn’t no way she just put that ladybug on me like that, my grandma knew better.  

I’m telling y’all, she just laughed and kept telling me it was still there.  I wanted to cry, but I didn’t.  I wasn’t going to let her see my tears (sounding dramatic?  I know, but I was a child.) 

After that whole fiasco my fear just got worse until it eventually ceased.  Now I’m kind of the petty one, and I am threatening to put ladybugs on my niece when she gets on my nerves.  But hey, it’s life and apparently a family tradition now. 

MR. CUDDLES, I hate you. 


I don’t see how Gumball could just take the rudeness from Penny’s pet like that. 

If you ever watched T.A.W.O.G then you most likely came across that episode when Gumball was fighting for his life with that Tarantula.  That whole episode gave me my big fear of spiders, which I still kind of cope with today.   It’s not as bad as when I was younger and was so scared of house spiders that I had to play The Floor Is Lava in my own room.   Back then, I wouldn’t have even made that spider pay rent, he could have the house for free.  Now, I just watch house spiders crawl away and go on with my day.   

Back to what I was saying though, I did not like Mr. Cuddles.   I kind of wished he got flushed down the toilet.

One thought on “I would fight these creatures right now (No I wouldn’t)”

  1. Bro that wormy episode lives in the backburner of my mind. They did a great job making the butterfly look horrifying, but as a kid, I thought it was funny as heck. Also, the ladybug punishment is WILD. Like girlie did not have to do that.
