Oh G-- no! When I was young I was quite arachnophobic (and also pretty insect-ophobic). I have pretty well worked myself out of all that and can admire bugs in the garden with the best of them.

It makes me all shivery just to type that!lorax wrote: I should mention that while I'm totally fine with spiders of any size when I can see and anticipate them, I'm not at all cool about them dropping in unexpectedly.
