So today I dealt with a really large cicada that flew into my bedroom and woke me up with its loud fluttering. I lived around them since I was a kid so a cicada isn't unheard of around here. However, getting up close and personal can be kind of soul shattering. It's been a while since I've been that afraid of an animal or bug. So I thought it'd be fun to use my experience to share a few facts about these insects.
