Appeal for snake phobics

Creepy Crawlies
Okay so yesterday I found this on my bedroom floor: Eeeewugh.
I think it's about life sized. Yuk.
Hesitant Scribe has been talking about spiders.
Stray has been talking about garden wildlife - particularly slow worms and grass snakes.
And A.Writer has been writing about splatting spiders.
So now I'm going to make my appeal for anybody out there who is snake phobic and would be willing to talk to me about it - by email.

Can't help you - sorry - I like snakes. But I hope someone else can.

Hi Zinnia
Me too. Hopefully someone brave will be able to talk to me about them!

That's just not cricket...what is it?

JJ said...

Eeeeewugh, Jon, it's a cockroach! Yuk. We get sprayed every month but last month I missed it because we were in England, so one of them obviously got in. BUT how they get in when we're 25 floors up I just do not know!

Cockroaches are fascinating, they can live for days without a head! I researched cockroaches quite extensively for a story that I started but never finished.

We once found a dead one in our bathroom - I bravely delegated and got Chris to dispose of it!!

I didn't know I had an issue with cockroaches till I moved here.....perhaps I should re-watch Joe's Apartment....

Jon, I really don't mind how long they live OUTSIDE my apartment. No, but you're right, they do have a reputation for being indestructible. I wonder what killed this one? Shock at seeing me with no make up on?

Carol, Me too. In fact I didn't have an issue til I got here, but then they are EVERYWHERE. I've been known to do that hysterical girly dance, women do to get away from mice, when they run past me in the soi! Tragic.
