Wuthering Heights (and lows)

This week's Thursday Threesome Got a blog? Play along!

Onesome: Wuthering--What kind of word is that anyway? Do you have a word you think is just strange? "Kangaroo" comes to mind ...

No, but I have a tester word, although I guess if I tell the whole internet it can't be my tester word anymore. Waylaid. I said it to someone once and they had no idea what I was saying. So I ask people if they know what it means. It has shaken out that the avid readers always recognize it and those who do not read on a regular basis do not.

Twosome: Heights--Are you afraid of them or can you dance along the rooftop coping like a character in a movie?

OMG! I'm afraid of them.... IF I am unsecured. For example I can go into a skyscraper and happily look out the window. But if it is something I can fall off, like a bunk bed, then I'm nervous. It's really weird. Even when I know logically that I'm not going to fall off, if the securing mechanism is open I have attacks of vertigo. I honestly can't think of any other word to describe it.

I have to show you this picture. I took it from one of the ramps at Reliant Stadium. My legs turned to lead as I approached the railing. I literally had to force myself to breathe and to put one foot in front of the other. I got to the railing (and there was no way I was going to fall over) and took the picture. That was my first bad attack and I'll never forget it.

Threesome: (and lows)--What kind of insect or bug sends you low and scurrying? Do spiders do that to you? Wasps? ...or do you just squish everything that "bugs" you?

It depends on the bug. A lot of times I get the bug on a piece of paper and toss it outside to continue its life. But yes flying stinging things make me scurry.
