so for those of you who did summer staff with me or happen to go to Christ Church might recall this little quote
"irrational fear: bugs crawling all over me....it's part of the reason i didn't join peace corps!"
here i am several months later, having decided that a phobia was not enough reason to miss out on an amazing opportunity...and really, how many critters could there be?
lots. tarantulas. scorpions. 1.5 inch cockroaches. *expletive*.
i mean, it's not enough to keep me from going obviously, but i get disturbed with every new horror story i come across in my nica blog perusals. does anyone think that packing a two year supply of raid is silly???
[and these are only the bugs on the outside. the number of parasites i may encounter in my pcv experience are innumerable. awesome.]
