Last time you got really scared?
Embarrassing story happened a few days ago. I was walking around my hood in Mitte playing Pokémon go. After a while I found a Pokémon and stopped walking to catch it.Then when I did it , I looked on my shoulder and saw a big thing sitting on my shoulder. Out of shock I jumped a little to the side shaked my shoulder and blew against the thing. The thing flew away and I realized that it was a beautiful butterfly…
