Stop, Drop, and Roll

I go out walking every evening.  There was more sun than usual tonight.  I guess because the days are getting shorter.

There are millions of these grasshoppers in the grass.  Normally, I'd freak, but they jump away from you, not on you.  One day I forgot to put on tennis shoes and I walked on the street into the park with flip flops on.  It gave me the heebie jeebies and I never forget to change shoes now.  

Last night I did a silent scream.  One of the grasshoppers jumped onto my neck!  Eeek!  Luckily, luckily he bounced right off, but if he'd stuck on me or had gone down my top I'd have screamed.  That's why I titled this "Stop, Drop, and Roll."  Thing is, that's for when you catch on fire.  I wasn't on fire, and I wouldn't want to throw myself down on the ground with the rest of the grasshoppers either!

I don't want to see this photo with a macro lens.

Eek! I do not like creepy crawlies one bit. Out in the garden, that's fine. But on my neck? Ewww.

Ooo yuck! I'm not an insect-on-my-body type of person either. :P

I don't blame you, I would have freaked out too!

I am the same way! Good thing they jump away and not at you!
