Everyday musings ….Life as I see it…….my space, my reflections and thoughts !!

You give me creeps!!

After reading a fellow blogger’s, post on her fear of the roaches, I remembered one that I had posted in the initial days of my blogging. Reposting it now 🙂


Aaaaaaah !! Hearing my loud scream my host rushed to find out what the matter was? We had gone over to a friend’s place for dinner. There, I spied on a sinister looking Mr. Cockroach in the kitchen. That scream, was my response on coming face to face with it 😦

My fear of the creepies-n-crawlies dates back to the time when I was a kid. I hated singing rhymes like Incy wincy spider or Little Miss Muffet and would often wonder the reason behind learning rhymes on such dreadful creatures. Those weird creatures always managed to exasperate me. Spying on one, I would yell out to Mom, my messiah, my saviour 🙂

I have vivid memories of our annual visit to our grandparent’s house at Udupi. It was a huge old house with a big garden, cowshed and a well. Oh! What fun we city bred cousins…

    I do feel the same about one such creature, but still I don’t have a courage to face and that ugly creature is a lizard !

  3. So nice, I feel, credits go to children for making moms brave. I can relate your life incidents to some extent with me and now I wonder how I changed myself with many things including dealing with such insects.

      Absolutely Meenakshi. Once you become a Mom then you have to don the shield of bravery for your kids sake. It teaches us so much 🙂

    Haha! Radhika, we sure are virtual sisters. And I am even happy about it. Really, I thought I was a weird ‘chicken’ running senseless at the sight of these creepy crawlies. Like you, my mother too was my messiah. 🙂
    I loved this one, Radhika.
