April Moon day 9 & muffins

Day 9 Prompt:

"You will need a blood test" or "This will only sting a tiny bit". I have this dread when it comes to needles. I dislike them, I can't watch them go in.

I also hate when people will be late. I dislike lateness.

I also get tense when I have to go see the dentist... dentists and needles are two things I am not fond of hahha

I don't like being the one who has to give speeches or some type of presentation.  I get stage fright to a degree.

  1. Those muffins sound heavenly!
