They say you should do one thing each day that scares you. OK, so I'm not sure who "they" are or why they'd think such an insane thing, but, regardless, the expression stuck somewhere in my mind.
And thus, at the start of the day, I vowed to do this.
Note: These are real. The scorpion is from Africa and will grow to be a foot long. The rose-hair tarantula is from Chile, and was by far the creepier of the two. It crawled all the way up my arm.
When the party started, I told everyone of my intentions. "Do not let me chicken out," I said.
So what did you do today that pushed your limits?
