My dad had an old-timer's saying, "If you wish to live and thrive, let a spider go alive." I took that to mean that if you squash a spider, you are in for a run of really bad luck!

I used to believe that if I caught a butterfly, and rubbed the powder off his wings, I could rub the powder on my arms and then I would be able to fly (the poor butterfly sure couldn't, anymore!). And then, when I couldn't fly, I just figured that I hadn't got enough powder yet...

Because I used to play Pitfall as a kid, I always thought that scorpians were about as big as small dogs. It wasn't until a class trip to Mexico when I was 17 that I found out that they were not quite that large.

When I was very young, I was TERRIFIED of flies! No, not bees or wasps, but flies! I think I had mixed up bees/wasps up with flies, becuase I was always scared they'd hurt me. I'd cry everytime I saw one.

When I was about 7, I would catch flies and put them in a set of plastic drawers I had. I would put a soda bottle top full of water and a few of my little toys in with them, figuring they would have a party or make a city. Of course, once they died the next day I always wondered what I did wrong. I'd try to give them new toys, but they never lived.

I used to believe that the bumps that mosquito bites gave you were because the mosquitos crawled under your skin and curled up in a little ball. I hated to itch them because I could just imagine them very happy that I was scratching their backs, and I only wanted them gone.

I used to believe that, when I slept at night, bugs would crawl into my ears and stay there. It was such a strong phobia that I could not sleep without cotton balls in my ears. I am mostly over it but every now and then I need the cotton balls to feel safe enough to sleep.

I have always been petrified of bees and and wasps and any sort of flying object really! And I used to believe that if you stepped on a dead bee it would come back to life and fly after you just to sting you and die again!

When I was about 3 or 4, I believed dragonflies wanted to kill me. I still remember one chasing me all over the backyard, and me barely making it into the house. Besides, they looked weird!
