I almost never freak out at the sight of a bug. Even a flying cockroach (though I will calmly attempt to kill it so it stops going all over the place and being distracting) or wasp. Wasps have flown around me many times without the slightest outward reaction, and that one time a cockroach landed on my arm, I just whacked it off and crushed it with a shoe. My verbal reaction was just a "HMM?!"
Though there was an exception. The bug, however, wasn't real.
Ever have one of those dreams where you partially wake up, so you see the real world, but something from the dream remains in the scene? Well, I couldn't remember the dream upon awakening that time, but something from it definitely remained.
I opened my eyes, looked at the ceiling, and saw a scorpion bigger than my head. The following...well, followed.
MOTHER F-- WHAT IN THE **** ****?! (Gets up quickly, blinks, looks up, only to realize it is gone) What...(Pants, realizes it was never really there, and goes to use the bathroom)
