Day 10: Something you’re afraid of.

Hmmmm.  The thing that I am afraid of is probably more of a phobia.  But isn’t phobia and afraid pretty much the same thing?

Ok with the exception that one is used as a noun and the other an adjective…..pretty much the same:  FEAR!!
With that said…..  I am afraid of SPIDERS!!
I hate them.  They are gross.  If I get one on me, I feel like I will upchuck.  Yes….that is what I am afraid of.  I would post a picture but that is gross too.
