I'm being held captive in my room by a fly.
Y'know how everyone has one fear that's genuinely and wholly irrational? Well, mine is crane flies. I don't even know why. Or, well, actually I do know why - because of an incident during my childhood involving a couple of bullies and a large crane fly and my face. I just. *shudders* NOPE. And now I can't deal with those things at all.
Well, there is now a rather large crane fly lurking in the area at the bottom of the stairs. The thing is nearly as big as my hand. It is horrifying. And it's also blocking my path to the bathroom and the kitchen... and I am so damn thirsty right now. But of course, I can't get to the kitchen to get a drink because of a large but entirely harmless fly.
A few minutes ago, I thought I'd try and sneak down and get something to drink before I go to sleep. My mum had tried to kill the fly, and apparently it had flew behind the fridge we have outside our kitchen door. So she said it'd be fine and it'd just stay behind there, and I figured she was probably right and decided I'd risk it so I didn't have to spend the entire night with a dry mouth.
But, of course, because I was so scared of the damn fly, I managed to have a mental shift from plain fear. Head lowered, phantom ears back, I frantically checked all of the walls as I crept down the stairs, and peeked around all the corners to make sure the harmless fly wasn't there. Then, figuring it was "safe", I started to inch towards the kitchen door.
Then, from behind the fridge, I heard the most HORRIBLE BUZZING SOUND. Ughghgughhgh. I don't know if it was actually some really damn loud buzzing or if I just had a mild sensory shift, but it was horrifying. And I basically had a big NOPE moment and bolted back up the stairs. And am now cowering in my room and feeling sorry for myself because I'm very thirsty and I can't get to the kitchen. Because of a completely harmless fly.
The worst bit is that I'm so thirsty my dog's water bowl is starting to look tempting.
You know what? Sod it. That water's fresh. I literally just changed it.
I'm drinking from the damn dog bowl because of a fly.
Someone please help me.
I'm such a brave and noble wolf, aren't I?
