The Itsy Bitsy Spider....

This guy surprised me the other day. He was in my closet. I thought it was a bit of stray Australian Shepherd fluff, from 'you-know-who' and I started to reach down to pick it up. Bleech!
I don't mind insects and spiders - if I'm the one going to look for them. But, when they show up and surprise me - I am not a happy camper! I did spray this fellow - or I tried to. He was rather nimble and jumped under the hanging clothes.  I really did not pursue him. So, for three days I made sure I turned on the closet light and looked where I stepped. Today I found his remains. RIP, Dreaming. You can now walk in the closet without worrying!

  3. I don't like insects and icky stuff they make my skin crawl. Paranoia strikes me when I see one at home. They should be outside and not inside our house.

  4. Wholly crap he was big! I would have passed out!

  5. I gotta admit that I would have put him outside.

  6. Eewww, I hate spiders! And if it was me, that huge, ugly, scary thing would've been drowned in bug spray! Ick! (It could've been poisonous, too. Who knows??)


What thoughts do you have?
