I saw Arachnaphobia once & that was enough for me. I think I watched most of it with a blanket over my head. Jaws didn't bother me, but I don't go in the ocean past my waist either. I hate not being able to see what I'm stepping on.

You don't like it when little fishes brush up against your legs? Better when those little fishes have little teeth!

It's not the fish that bother me, it's the jellyfish & crabs that pinch my toes. I was in Florida once right when the baby jellyfish hatched or whatever & those little suckers sting like crazy!! I'll take snakes & lizards any day!!

HA! You got crabs!

sorry.

Yeah, I had a pair of fillet gloves on and went to pick up a crab I had caught at my grandparents summer house and the little devil pinched right thru the glove!

As for the jelly fish, when they are here (in Jersey), you know not to go in the water. I don't know what it's like there, but they can be seen when they are here. I got it from one that had washed ashore one year, I hurt for a while.

I love spiderwebs, especially when you can watch the artist at work. It's so amazing! I'm not afraid of them, but prefer them to be outside. I remember being a teen and the base of a nearby mountain was quite a haven for tarantulas. You'd have to drive incredibly slow, as they were always wandering around on the road.

naw, they were really cool to watch, and since it was a mountain road, it wasn't traveled too often. I went up there for the beauty and to feed the horses that lived at the base of it.

Yeah, yeah, yeah...I was expecting that, that's why I put in the part about them pinching my toes.

When I was in Florida, you could see the big ones, it was the babies that you couldn't see in the water. Needless to say, I got out of the water very fast & didn't go back in. I was quite happy laying on the sand & spending my time in the pool.
