Eight Legs are Six Too Many...

I know that they are harmless, but I do not appreciate seeing a LARGE one of these next to the toilet first thing in the morning:

Good morning. I am a harmless WOLF SPIDER.

Of course, Trevor had already left the house, so I had to deal with it by my self. So much for Trevor's job of relocating insects and arachnids to the backyard. Slacker...

And it wasn’t like I could just ignore him and hope Mr. Spider would go away. I wouldn’t be able to sleep tonight because all the convincing in the world wouldn’t be enough to prove to me that the eight legged freak wasn’t hiding in my bed somewhere – waiting for me to fall asleep before scrambling out and attacking me at my most vulnerable.

So, I dealt with it. All by myself. Even when the little ba$tard crouched and ran at me when I was trying to cover him with a glass.

Luckily (for both of us), I was able to successfully relocate the spider to the backyard without major incident. And I only screamed twice, thankyouverymuch.

I deserve a certificate of achievement. Possibly a medal. Because spiders seriously weird me out. Even when I’m (fairly) sure they are harmless.

Shiver.

I am so paranoid about this, after having it happen to me (only with a different type of spider, and one that did NOT get relocated to the outside, because if they come in my house, they die).

Ick. I'm shuddering right along with you.

Lili lets them hang around and build webs on the outside eaves of her house, because they kill mosquitos, flies and other annoying insects. Yes, they are harmless--scary--but, harmless (to humans, anyway)

...but is Haskell safe????

EXACTLY Trevor!

Good job! I don't know that I could have done that successfully. Anything too large for my bug vacuum normally gets squished, sadly.

Yeah, what I think I would have done was burn down the house and never look back. At least, that's what I would have wanted to do.

p.s. my word verification is "carkers," which is going to be my new swwear word.

...Wolf Spiders aren't exactly harmless, Deek. It hurts like hell when they bite, no poison, but definitely painful.
