Thursday 3: The Willies

Three creatures that give me the willies:

1. Leeches
2. Maggots
3. Young kids who are allowed to get their food from the buffet without their parent's supervision.

I'm serious about that last one. I once saw a kid stick her finger up the frozen yogurt dispenser at the MGM Grand Hotel buffet for a taster. Appalled, I told her not to do that. She looked at me like I was confused/crazy. (Who is this strange woman actually talking to me?) Needless to say, I did not subsequently get myself any frozen yogurt.


  1. I'd add mice and rats to the list. I'm okay until they head in my direction. I prefer to keep a healthy distance.

    I've never come across young kids getting their food by themselves. I would have probably told her off too.

  2. Okay, you got me with #3. I'm sooooo with you on that one...

    Happy TT! (Thursday Three!)


  3. Ewwwwww ... yeah, I'm with you on these. Yuck! Happy Thursday! *Hugs*

  4. Say, what happened to the other ten? LOL. Or is this the short version and a new trend. I like it! I always have trouble finding 13 things. I may just adopt the practice.

    See, you're a trendsetter. :D ((hugs))

  5. Yeah, I agree with number 3. I also get squicked out by lizards and small children who eat snot.


  6. A Warning would have been nice. Raisin Bran cereal just isn't as good after reading this lol Go fig!
    Happy T3!

  7. I'm with you on those too! I'll never be able to eat frozen yogurt or that yummy soft serve ice cream from a buffet again.

  8. Ewwww! I agree with all of them!


    My TT is at http://paigetylertheauthor.blogspot.com/

  9. Okay, this whole topic is taking on a life of it's own. And it's disgusting????????? Glad I'm not eating at the moment.

  10. Wild mice and rats...YUCK. From the pet store as pets, they're okay.

    Oh, I never do 13 anymore. LIke you said, it was always really hard to come up with that many. I blog religiously 5 times a week, so I figure I can slack off on Thursday. ;)

    Oh, yeah, snot eating kids WAY disgusting. As an elementary school teacher, I saw plenty of that.

  11. I agree with all of these. Plus rats.

  12. And I eat at the MGM Grand Buffet ever time I road trip to Vegas for the LA Kings exhibition hockey games at the arena there. I don't think that's happening next time.

  13. Oh, Robbie, I'm sure stuff like that happens at all buffets. I still eat at them occasionally. Can't resist. Try not to think about unaccompanied kids.
