Small Things That Scare Me

January 24, 2010

(The last in a series of one, or so I hope…)

Larval angel emerging from chrysalis?!?

From a discarded Christmas tree comes this… larval angel?

What sort of mind could portray that adorable little head and torso emerging from that nightmarish, translucent segmented abdomen—or is it a chrysalis?—and not notice that something was very wrong?

What sort of mind could see this insectile chimera in a store and want to take it home?

Okay, so now I kinda like it…

      Yeah, you’ll say it’s cute, until its momma comes along with her 8-foot barbed ovipositor…

    Eeeeeuuuuwwwww! She’s definitely larval. What if that’s what happens to us when we die, we become larvae and maggots?!? Being food for larvae and maggots is creepy enough, but actually becoming a larval angel…hmm, er, fallen angel…excreted by an 8-foot barbed ovipositor? Gluhech!
