Mwah-ha-ha-ha- oops?

The kids drove back to college at o'dark-hundred this morning. It was wonderful having them home for a few days. :)

That subject line? New friends probably haven't heard about our daughter's phobia regarding crustaceans (crabs, crawdads, lobsters), but it is a real thing. :O

Geico has been running a TV commercial recently that features a couple at a resort lounging in a spa, only to have a giant lobster soaking across from them strike up a conversation. I've been seeing it for weeks, and thinking that it is totally our daughter's nightmare.

Well, Friday night she came back from running an errand and sat down on the sofa for a few minutes. The TV was on, and...

"Oh my god! And those giant legs! Ugh, that's disgusting!" *flees*

Part of me was thinking she really needed to see it, because she would hate it so much! But also, totally Ewwww for her, so... \o?
