I have a fear or grasshoppers because of this incident when I was about 7 or 8 years old (I am 39 now, so it was a long time ago).

I was playing outside in the springtime and had a long sleeve sweater on. I cam in fro lunch and took the sweater off and threw it by the back door. After lunch, I put the sweater back on and there was something jumping up and down in my sleeve and I was FREAKING out! I was jumping up and down and screaming and it was everything my Mom could do to get that sweater off me. I was crying and she got it off and out jumped a GRASS HOPPER! It scared me to death. I would not go outside after that for the rest of the day. Just relating the story now gives me chills. I really do not like grasshoppers to this day at all!

Even the picture I found on photobuket gives me the heebie jeebies to look at. I HATE them!

What is your freaky bug story!

I LUV Sharing!

  1. Thanks for joining us on the Thursday Blog Hop. I am following back.

  2. New follower here. Ear wigs and bees. I could live my whole life without ever seeing or even knowing of the existence in earwigs. I once was taking a shower after camping for the weekend and as I rinsed out my hair, an earwig dropped from my hair down the drain. I was mortified and immediately wanted to shave my head. I didn't, but I wanted to. *shivers

    Bees are cool as long as they keep their end of the restraining order I have with them. The only reason bees aren't as high up the hate list as earwigs is, I simply couldn't live without flowers. But earwigs…Death to them all.
