I’m afraid of butterflies.

Generally speaking, this fear doesn’t really affect my day-to-day life, especially living in NYC, which is fairly inhospitable to life in general.

Today I had every intention of sitting on my roof and reading a book. Unfortunately, when I got on the roof, a large butterfly was patrolling the roof top, filling me with nauseating fear that it might get me. So I retreated indoors and gave up. 

In honor of this humiliating moment, I googled “world’s largest butterfly” and found this horrifying video.
