Along Came a Spider...

Much as I hate to admit it, I was sitting on the John earlier this morning (in preparation to go to bed), a big ol' black or brown spider wandered in under the door, moving rather quickly.

Moved my foot and the fucker jumped about two to four inches into the air. Thereby moving closer to said foot . Probably closer to two than four. No matter. It startled me! I snatched up an empty gallon jug of vinegar that happened to be sitting there (I'm soaking a shower head in the stuff) and brought it smartly down upon said jumpy big black or brown spider, expiring it rather expediently.

Hate to kill anything that kills and eats bugs, but that old boy looked like it could bring a small field mouse down and seemed to be jumping in my general direction. It hadda go!

Sayonara muthafucka!!

My son would have freaked out. He is terrified of spiders. In fact, just the other day he comes to get me saying there's a Huge spider in his bathroom (either I or his little sister have to take care of the spiders for him). It ended up being a daddy longlegs. Completely harmless, but I guess to someone who doesn't like spiders, it does look Huge.

I prefer to live and let live usually. Especially where insect predation goes.

But if you get in my space? WHAMMO! is still a likely outcome.

Oh, it is a rule in my house that I will kill any spider that wanders in. I tell them that before I kill them, which is probably why the other spiders have not heard of that rule. ;)
