Have you ever looked up at the ceiling while in the shower only to see what looks like a tiny spider crawling towards you from the other side of the room? Have you ever prepared yourself, shower nozzle in hand, to blast that tiny spider from the sanctity of your lair into kingdom come with the water jet set to pulsate? Have you ever let loose a battle cry of, "sheet rock and subfloor be damned!" as you prepared to take aim by crouching in the farthest corner of the shower? Have you ever realized, in the middle of defending your territory and your naked body, that the said "spider" was really just a lady bug? Have you ever had a conversation with a lady bug that was all, "Oh hello Mrs. Lady Bug-I hope thee are well today my fair maiden!"
I do not have a lot of compunction about just killing a spider dead … I figure, the inside is mine, the outside is theirs, woe to the spider who crosses that line. But I really really do not like splattered spider. It is just not hygienic or feng shui in any known galaxy.
Lately we've been getting a lot of spiders in the house. And not your wussy garden-variety spider; we're talking big ones, the kind that can make eye contact with you and stare you down while your shoe-clutching hand hovers over its body.
