Stuff That Really Grinds My Gears #2

So, I feel like I'm a pretty easy going person and most things don't bother me for example, crickets. I don't mind listening to the crickets at night while I'm going to sleep. To be honest, I find it somewhat soothing, I've lived around crickets my whole life and their has chirping never really bothered me.

Most people that know me, know that I am an animal lover. I like all type of animals, even reptiles. There was a period of time when I wanted a lizard of some sort but, I could never bring myself to getting one because you have to feed them crickets and I hate bugs and I didn't like how the crickets looked all crowded in the bag. I could never get a lizard, or any reptile for that matter because I would be more scared of the crickets than my actual pet!

Well, in the past few months or so I have learned that in St. George crickets don't just hide in the grass, they are all over the place! And wild crickets are even creepier than the ones in the pet store!! Every night that I work I have to take the trash out and every night I have to walk along a sidewalk that seems to be infested with these weird, chirping, jumping (yes, crickets do jump) bugs! They gross me out and I don't like them. I hope it gets cold soon so they will go away!! For anyone who hasn't seen a cricket in the wild I do not recommend it, be sure to stay clear of the sidewalks in St. George during the months of August and September!!

P.S. that picture may have to come off of my blog because it's totally creeping me out!
