When I was five, my mother put me in a bath while she did the ironing. After a while I noticed a spider floating in the water and I screamed. My mother ran into the washroom to see what was the matter. I pointed at the spider. Bravely she scooped it up and stuck it onto the side of the tub to show me that it was only a piece of sock fluff. Ever since that day I have had a fear of spiders.
