Have I got a story for You!!
You know how I’m all Zen with spiders… I shower with one. One day I noticed one relaxin’ on the couch with me. It’s all good.
Right? They leave me alone and I don’t kill them. They eat the bugs I hate. It’s all Good!
And how I'm all brave with them... riiiight.
Friday morin’ Roy and I was out in the pool. He was vaccumin’ and I was just there for moral support. After we got out we went to the house to change. He got a towel and was dryin’ off and I pulled one down from the shower door to use.
I didn’t have my glasses on but out the corner of my eye I could see a spider on my boob!
Takin’ a shower with him is one thing or sittin’ the couch watchin’ TV is okay but him actually invadin’ my private space… like my boob… is entirely a horse of a different color!!!
All that passed thru my brain as I jumped up and down squeallin’ for Roy to get it off!!! I didn’t just slap it! I did that once and was stung by a wasp as I was drivin’ down the road!! And that hurt like Hell!
So as long as Roy’s standin’ right there he can brush it off and I’ll be fine. The Shower Spider can go his way and I’ll go mine!!
So I stood perfectly still!!!
And squealed, “euuuuuwwww get it off! get it off!!!”
Roy brushed it off into the floor… and then trapped in a cup.
OH! MY! GOD!!!!
It was NOT MY Shower Spider!!!!!!
It was a brown recluse!!!!!
Have you seen the damage that those little bastards can do??? Your skin rots off!!! Large patches of skin!!!!! I wanted to post a photo but I just can’t do that and think about my boob rottin’ off.
I was so not brave!!
I may rethink my whole Zen with Spiders approach to life.
