So, the first thing people respond with when I tell them we’re moving to Texas is,
“You know they have big bugs in Texas, right?!”
Um, thank you? You felt it was important to remind me of that, why?!
You see, the people who know me best know that I have a bug phobia. Not necessarily bugs in general, but more specifically the ant-type ones that get in the house. We’re talking full-out phobia here–panic attacks and everything, if I see one inside. And please let me remind you right now that phobias aren’t always rational things! There’s no talking someone out of a phobia. You can’t just say, “Stop being afraid of this.” Although, this misguided counselor did–remember this? If not, it’s worth the time to watch it now.
It’s strange how your mind can recognize that what you’re afraid of is silly, and yet your nervous system responds all on its own! I’ll talk more about this later–in a more serious post. But for today, I hope you were able to laugh just a little.
Have a peace”full” weekend!
