I hate insects more than anything. Yes, more than sharks, more than bears, more than snakes.
When I saw Ms. Nora playing with a peculiar little creature (in my living room!) I started over to grab it, until I realized what it was. Against my better judgement, I convinced myself to get it away from her by PICKING IT UP. Yeah, so what if it was dead, I still hate them. Anyway, I had to yell to Josh to come witness the miracle. He was pretty proud.
