“Slang. a condition of extreme nervousness caused by fear, worry, strain”
Ibis birds, otherwise known as the Bin Bird to most Australians, give me a severe case of the heebie-jeebies whenever they are near.
Why, you may be asking?
Because I don’t trust them. I hate them more than Magpies.
Take a close look at those beady-little eyes they have … dark as the devil himself. And those long legs … perfect for pulling apart flesh (or bin lids). Don’t even get me started on the translucent flaps of veiny skin that runs between their bodies and wings (what was God thinking?). And those beaks! Don’t tell me you’ve never thought of one of those sinewy, curved beasts going into your eye!
Just typing this gives me the heebie-jeebies *shudder*.
