Living in Florida we have LOTS of bugs- BIG ones ..little ones…black..brown..red…4 legs…8 legs…..24 legs…they fly..they crawl…whatever- they are all gross. Chad and I have a buggy jail. A tupperware container we labeled as “BUGGY JAIL” so we never accidently use it for food, and we keep it under the sink next to the bug spray. It is usually easy to catch things unless they fly- then I usually let them fly freely around until either the cats or the Chadster get it.
A few months ago I found a VERY LARGE brown fuzzy spider in my closet. This thing was bigger than my palm- I sloooooowly took the clothes all out of my closet- piled them on the bed–took out all the shoes, etc. Of course, I wasn’t going to squish the thing with one of MY shoes so I ran into Chad’s closet and grabbed one of his shoes. (Aren’t bug guts supposed to be on the bottom of boy shoes?) I also armed myself with some roach spray (hoping it kills spiders too) and there I stood- me against the VERY LARGE spider in an empty closet. Of course I had to have Chad on the phone- even though he was at work somehow having him on the phone was supposed to help me? So I would spray and the thing would fall and start running and I would shriek and run (I feel bad for Chad’s co-workers who I am sure could hear me) The stupid VERY LARGE spider runs under the bed- now I am begging Chad to HURRY h0me from work to kill this thing- eventually I saw the thing running out from under the bed- I sprayed the dickens out of it, whacked it with Chad’s shoe- poor thing curled up into a VERY LARGE ball- and I quickly put the buggy jail on top of it and put Chad’s shoe on top of it just in case it sprung back to life. And there it sat until Chad got home several hours later.
Well, a few days ago, I turned on the shower, stripped down BUTT NAKED and climbed into the shower, closing the door behind me. And I saw this just above my head….
He came back for revenge (or it was a relative-whatever) – he was a VERY LARGE BROWN FUZZY SPIDER –
I shrieked, jumped out of the shower, ran BUTT NAKED across the house- grabbed a Chad shoe, the buggy jail, and the roach spray. This one was easier to get- he was kinda trapped in the tub- of course-I sprayed the dickens out of it (while shrieking..BUTT NAKED) until he curled up in a VERY LARGE ball- then slammed the buggy jail on top of him with Chad’s shoe on top in case he sprung back to life- and there he sat until Chad got home several hours later.
So- they say when you see one there is probably a hundred living in your house somewhere. Bring it on VERY LARGE BROWN FUZZY SPIDER…BRING IT ON!!
