Causes of THE CREEPS

Emotional responses all part of the things that creep us out

If only it were so simple as spiders. You spot one, do a few steps of the hand-shaking, Eew! Dance and then deal with it — either leave it along, gingerly take it outside or Deal With It (if you get the drift.)
It’s maybe or maybe not scary, but a cause of the creeps? Probably not just one actual, in-person spider.
But how about this: Anyone who served or knows someone who served in Iraq is aware of camel spiders, those dinner plate-sized monsters of the desert. To see on in person is a genuine terror, but to be emailed a photo of one by a soldier oversees is to experience the creeps. It’s just so big and gross and horrible.
