Spiders Have Taken Over My House.

You think I'm kidding.

I woke up at 11:30 last night with a spider crawling on my arm. I must have been really sleepy, because I didn't immediately fly out of bed. In fact, I sat up and actually contemplated going back to sleep without investigating. "There was a spider crawling on your arm, you (expletive) twit! Turn the light on and do something about it!" It was a very "Get up, Trinity. Get UP!" moment. I turned on the light and found a small, but fat, black spider hanging out by my pillow. Caught him. Flushed him down the toilet. Somehow managed to fall back asleep.

This morning as I was contemplating how I could possibly go to work without having to get out of bed, I noticed another spider on the ceiling. This one was brown and skinny. Skinny, yes, but not any less freakish than the fat black one. I looked at this spider on the ceiling, and thought, "Hmm. I'm not tall enough to reach it. Maybe it will go over to the wall so I can catch it." As the spider started crawling across the ceiling, above my bed, I thought, "What if it dropped? What if it dropped right now?? No, wait. What if it dropped right as it reached the space above my head???" I'm sure you can imagine my surprise when it reached the space above my head, and actually dropped. Shrieking and throwing of blankets ensued.

Mornin'.

Eeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!

I would be in the hospital recovering from a heart attack!

Are you gonna be like me now and check every covering on your bed thoroughly, the walls and the ceiling before carefully slipping into bed each nite?

Dan says you sound just like your Mother. LOL Not really, I would've freaked over the first sighting!

Well darling. It is a darn good thing you don't live in the country. Damn city girl anyway. You could be like your Mother and drop a peice of tape on it ~ no wait that would have to be on the floor. I can't believe you would get out of bed in the middle of the night to flush a spider. Hmm? I have 4 yes, 4 spider bites on my one leg. Okay, one is on my big toe. I am lucky they were not anything worse than they ended up being. Can't stand spiders either, although I just bought a bow (yes, I will be going hunting :)) and it is called the spider. Hehe.

I live in the country and I still freak over spiders, on my arm or anywhere else! Although I haven't tried taping any to the floor for awhile...:)
