Had to share this story because I'm still totally creeped out. ughh I went to give my dog fresh water this morning like I do every morning, and when I went to pick up her dish I saw something in it.Upon closer inspection, it was a HUGE HUMONGOUS xxxxxxx spider!!! I HATE spiders! No matter how big or how small. And this was the mother of all spiders! Ahh! It was FLOATING in her water dish! I mean HUUUUGE! There was also something white at the bottom of the dish??? and the spider which probably measured 2 1/2-3" across was floating on a white sac about the size of a jelly bean. ICK I thought to myself xxx?? It made itself its own flotation device? LOL I know probably an egg sac right? Anyway, I had NO IDEA how to deal with this creepy thing. I didn't dare pic up the dish and empty it..it might crawl up my arm! eeewww And I couldn't just smush it..it was in water! So I woke up my 15 yr old son who will usually take care of spider detail for me, but he wasn't touching it with a 10 foot pole either. HA So I called hubby at work, yep called him at work LOL But he wasn't in town so that left that out! OH xxxx now what? I tried phoning one of the kids friends-no answer-probably sleeping
So I ended up taking a tall disposable plastic cup and quickly put it over the creepy thing, picked up the dish, held it at arms length and ran for the back door yelling at my kid "Get the doooor!" lol I dumped it out and it didn't move for a second, them it started crawling dragging that icky white sac under it! Ahhhh!! again. So I grabbed a piece of slate that was laying nearby and dropped it on it and proceeded to do the heebie jeebie dance on it sayin ahhhhhh some more. God I HATE spides!!!!
To all you spider fans out there..sorry to have destroyed the thing, but hey, what can I say? EWWWWW maybe you will at least get a good laugh out of my total freak out. haha
And to all you non spider fans, maybe you can relate and get the heebie jeebies right along with me? I'm still creeped out and that was4 hrs ago! Probably have nightmares over it tonite! LOL
Funny it was just a couple days ago I was telling baby blue how much I despise spiders. Me and my big mouth! LOL
Oh man, what would have happened if Abbey went to drink from her dish??? OMG!!!!
