Some things are creepy:
- Rough toilet paper
- Bratty babies
- And big fish with teeth
As intimidated as I may be by a shark, a barracuda is really bone-chilling.
I guess it’s because I like the idea of fish who gum their worms instead of fish who bite my leg.
Matter of fact, I almost refuse to think about it.
If it weren’t for the Wilson sisters and the rock band, Heart, I would never have allowed my brain to think about “barracuda.” And the word only became tolerable as Ann Wilson cooed it out as a seductive come-on in their hit song.
I don’t know why it sounds sexy to me–that a woman would be a barracuda–but I guess there’s just enough perversion within my being that having a lady chomp on me seems erotic.
But I don’t think I’m alone, because they sold … a lot of records.
