I have a love/hate relationship with many animals.  I used to love cats, but they make me sneeze.  I like most dogs, but their barking and pooping in my yard (when they're not even mine) is a bit ridiculous.  And birds, don't even get me started on the birds with the annoying chirping they like to do at 5:30 AM outside of my bedroom.  But, while these animals have their annoying tendencies, they don't make me jumpy and nervous, as NaBloPoMo asked today.

Some animals do make me a bit nervous.  Anything that is dangerous, of course.  If I saw a tiger staring me in the face, I'd be extremely jumpy and nervous.  But thankfully, that's not likely to happen in Texas.  What is more likely is one of these guys, staring me down:

I've seen a few rattlesnakes in my lifetime and I really don't want to ever seen another one, or any snake for that matter!  We used to have innocent little grass or garden snakes in our yard and they terrified me so much!  So yes, snakes in general make me jumpy and nervous!

  2. Snakes are my #1 nasty, creepy, scare me, freak me out beyond belief. Just that picture in your post makes me squirm! I hate snakes more than anything in this world!!! Eep!

  3. Big, creepy snakes like this totally freak me out, but I am the snake killer around my house so I can't be totally scared by them…well, I am…but somebody's gotta kill 'em!!

  4. Oddly, birds, because of their beady little eyes. I'd take a snake over a bird anyday of the week hehehe
