The Pitfalls of Reading

Sebastian has taken to reading a small book entitled something like The Aventura Guide to Survival, and I wish that he would stop. Up until he opened this book at the chapter entitled Dangers of South America I was content in my idea that very few creatures exist in the dry barren climate found in much of the Andes. Now with every turn of the page he comes across a half dozen more terrifying animals with both the inclination and ability to inflict a horrible drawn out death on anyone unfortunate enough to cross their paths. Snake, spiders, insects, lions, and bears apparently abound. And they all have an attitude that makes Vlad the Impaler look more saintly than Mother Theresa.
