OMG. That is disgusting. When I was in AZ in April the friend we were staying with told us that she found a scorpion in her apartment the day before we got there! yuck!

Holy mother of God. I’d be seriously reconsidering Texas, but I’m particularly squeamish.

I am now officially a “shoe-by” something that mortifies my children, but I am so happy to wear water shoes when I am in the river, lakes or ponds. You just can’t see down there! I love Little MIss Sunshine too

I think I’m constitutionally incapable of living south of the Mason-Dixon line, and that’s part of the reason why.

The smaller ones are more painful if you DO get stung…be careful! (AND check your shoes BEFORE you put them on ’cause they like those dark places!)

The mere sight of one of these things just gives me the eeby-jeeby-shivers…ewwwww

Oh jesus christ, that’s scaring me just looking at it.

WTF? Yikes! Was that in your house? Or yard?

Usually I have to travel to the West Indies to get the pee scared out of me like that. Woo boy.
