creepy crawly

I have this irrational fear of tiny bugs. Well, tiny bugs that are creepy crawly and come in large groups, ie. ants. Well tiny bugs and anything that has a lot of little holes...because they remind me of tiny little bugs and then I get itchy all over. It's not like I'm afraid they're going to eat me alive or that I don't realize I could just squish them and it's all over with. It's that there are so many of them and I feel like they will all crawl all over me and give me the eeby-jeebeez and I hate that feeling. Hate.

So given that it was raining off and on the past month, all the ants outside decided to come inside my house. Our house became a war zone with random screams when I encountered the little guys. Then there would be screaming, eeking, and laughing as I tried to clean them up and kill them.

As soon as I see ants, I get itchy all over and feel like they are all crawling on me. Whoever would happen to be in my company would get scared out of their socks when I let out a scream and then start slapping myself in hopes of killing whatever ant would be crawling on me. I would make whoever happened to be in my presence including random strangers check for me, "is there an ant on me?" The other day when I suddenly screamed then kicked off my shoe and pulled off my sock to kill an "ant" that I swear crawled into my shoe and through my sock JUST to tickle me...Bertrand told me, "You doesn't really mean there is ant on you every time you itch or feel a tickle."


Fine. So everyone thinks I'm crazy.

This morning when I was up at 6am rocking one of the babies in the rocking chair I felt a little tickle on my face. I ignored it at first remembering what my wise husband had told me. But then the itch was out of control and I scratched...and guess what? There was a freaking ant on my face.

See? They ARE crawling all over me. Irrational fear my butt.
